A graduate of the Columbus College of Art and Design, Gail Kelley's artistic focus became dog portraits after being given the idea by a friend, the owner of a doggy daycare. While she's worked in many mediums, she finds the most comfort working with oils, and has shown her art as far away as Japan.
"My intent is to find the one look that any owner knows their dog/pet by, it’s the look that binds them as partners. Many people comment about the eyes, and I do work the eyes first. If the eyes are right, the rest of the work just falls into place."
