I discovered Manda’s Wolfe’s work the other day. I find her work so cheery and fresh with a modern take on the traditional pet portrait. Her unique compositions make her work really stand out from other artists. The bright background colors really make each animal pop!
I love how the plum color background compliment’s the Chihuahua’s ears.
This unique portrait of a Dalmatian puppy is so creative and modern. Manda works in gouache which gives a beautiful rich deep saturated effect. She works out of her Santa Barbara home.
How can you not LOVE this Boxer portrait. The sweet face nestled beside the paw defined by the artist’s almost linocut style lines highlight all the adorable creases and folds. You can place your custom order on Manda’s Etsy Shop.
As you can imagine Manda is a pet lover. She occasionally donates pieces to foster organizations and is always trying to help adopt out furry friends that need a loving home. Of course she has her own studio assistants, a cat named Dexter and Abby the dog.
