Happy first day of Spring! I wanted to share something new and I am so excited to have found Fiona Hsieh! I love how her landscape portraits have so much emotional impact.
“I’m Fiona Hsieh, currently an animation student (with a focus on visual development) at California Institute of the Arts. I’ve been drawing ever since I can remember, so am now pursuing an art career in the animated film industry. I paint digitally, though I’m able to paint in watercolors and acrylics too. My dogs are my babes and have inspired me to research dog training and behavior to an obsessive degree. Lancer is my rigorous, velcro, self-driven male Aussie and Rara is my sensitive, observant, and quite complex little female MAS.
This last portrait must be of Rara, Fiona’s mini Aussie Shepherd. I think she did an amazing job of capturing Rara’s personality! You can read Fiona’s blog about her dogs, Lancer and Rara.
Fiona is available for custom portraits. If you are interested in getting a custom portrait from Fiona email her at: firstname.lastname@example.org. Fiona doesn’t simply paint from a photograph, she can create a gorgeous landscape for you and your dog!
