I am Lene Daugaard. I am passionate about drawing.
I was born in Aarhus, and have since lived in and around Aarhus. A city I like very much.
I was a child who drew a lot - many pads, notebooks and sheets of paper were filled with my lines. Most often I drew animals, horses, dogs and wild animals. But also many ladies, I wanted to draw them in fancy clothes.
Pencils and coloredmarkers were my media as a child.
During school, several of my classmates would always look over my shoulder and see what I had drawn.
I was also happy to write little stories and add drawings.
During my youth and for many years to come, drawing waned, eventually disappearing completely from my life. Today I think it's so strange, but that's how it was.
Right up to the end of the 1990s. I was then in my late 30s.
I remember borrowing a book on drawing and colored pencils and I started drawing again and I haven't looked back since.
I have studied many books, I have participated in drawing, watercolor and acrylic courses both in Århus, Odense and online.
After several years, exhibiting my paintings, I am now in the process of building my illustrations and surface pattern business, so that even more of my drawings can become designs for many things within home design, office supplies, fabric, etc. via licensing and my own production.
My new brandname is Foxtail Studio.
For several years I have had my dog designs at POD shops under the Doggyshop brand.
Foxtail studio is the brand of Lene Daugaards illustration and design business.
Animals and nature are the heart of Foxtail Studio, and Lene wants to spread the joy of these subjects as loveable and beautiful designs to everybody who love animals – domestic as wild and natureelements like florals.
Lene varies her designs from naturalhistory realism to whimsical drawings. The core of Foxtail Studio is all about wonderful creatures and pretty botanicals.
I am most inspired by animals and nature. I love to draw and paint animals with pen and brush.
Plants/flowers are also a great source of inspiration. And still ladies appear in my drawings now and then.
Dogs are the animal I have drawn and painted the most. A constant flock of lovely dog drawings can be seen in my Doggyshops, where they delight dog lovers around the world.
My goal is for you to be inspired and delighted by my animal drawings, which I draw in both a realistic and whimsical style.
When I'm not drawing, being out in nature is important to me. Nature is where I best recharge with renewed energy. My sister and I enjoy going on 1-day hikes around heaths and plantations and forests in Jutland.
Also, I visit zoological gardens and greenhouses, I love watching movies and musical theater and read books, enjoy doing yoga and being with my daughter and family.
