The following was submitted by the artist:My name is Dee Dee Murry and I live in Washington State.
I paint in many mediums but mainly acrylic and graphite. My style is realism and my subjects are animals, namely horses, dogs, pets and wildlife. I am self taught. I have placed in the top 40 or higher several years in the Federal Duck Stamp competition and was the Washington State Ducks Unlimited artist of the year. I was born in the Pacific Northwest, and have always been an animal lover. I showed horses growing up and currently show dogs as well. I paint a limited number of commissions each year and I also do many photo shoots of horses, dogs and wildlife to paint from. I am always experimenting with different media.
