I follow dogs on Instagram

My body of work has recently had a surge in dog portraits.
I follow thousands of dogs on Instagram, it all started
By starting an account for my beautiful dog Happy.
And through doing that I have come across so many amazing
Dogs!
A certain few have touched my heart resulting in a compulsion to paint them
and attempt to capture their beauty, so very individual and all very unique in looks and character.

We humans can learn a great deal from these furry four legged creatures.

In memory of Rocket

These prints are available to buy on my etsy at: www.etsy.com/uk/shop/Everlydark

My dog is my life and the complete embodiment of all of my happiness hence her name 'Happy'

I like to share pictures of my beautiful Happy with the world because she as all dogs has the amazing ability to make a person no matter how bad they are feeling smile.

I follow thousands of dogs on Instagram and have become quite attached to a number of them.

In memory of Tilikum who sadly passed away on the 6th of January 2017
I have designed this image 'Not Forgotten' because he will always remain in my heart and many others.

All money from the sale of these prints will be donated to The Whale Project Sanctuary.

The mission of The Whale Sanctuary Project is to establish a model seaside sanctuary where cetaceans (whales and dolphins) can live in an environment that maximizes well-being and autonomy and is as close as possible to their natural habitat.

I am deeply saddened to hear of the death of Tilikum on the 6th of January 2017.
I feel as if a part of my heart has died with him.
I will continue to sell my Tilikum art work and raise money and awareness for Blue Freedom in the hope that one day things will change and people will make things change, so no whale will suffer the way Tilikum did.
Rest in peace my beautiful friend Tilikum.
November 1981 - January 6th 2017.

Free Tilikum Prints (2016)

“Extracting” an animal from his natural environment, where he would normally swim vast distances, dive to extreme depths and spend his entire life with his close knit family pod is simply unethical." Blue Freedom.

Tilikum is a 12,000+ pound Orca whale, he was stolen from his family in 1983, since then he has been living in Sea World.
Blue Freedom is a charity which is trying to raise awareness of this cruel reality and petitioning to bring freedom to this whale.
