Helping animals one brushstroke at a time…

We’ve long admired the work of Ashland artist Dana Feagin, whose Inspired Pet Portraits are not only lovely, whimsical, and adorable but amazingly generous: Dana donates 10 percent of the proceeds from her sales to local animal charities and rescue groups.

We were thrilled when Dana was inspired to create a portrait of our general manager, Theo.

It is a testament to Dana’s talent that she was able to capture his personality so well (yes, he really is this scary), and we enjoyed seeing the portrait (aptly titled “You looking at me?”) debut at the Ashland Art Center last weekend.

We love Dana’s work as well as her commitment to animals; she’s an active volunteer at a local animal shelter as well as at Sanctuary One, an amazing organization that offers healing for people, animals, and the planet. Dana also does commissions; visit her website for more information.
