Drawings & paintings by Lene Daugaard
My art is especially for animal and nature lovers. I am inspired by the diversity of life, amazing colors, patterns and wonderful creatures found in nature.
I really like being in nature, here I find peace and new energy.
I love animals. When I was young, I dreamed of becoming a zookeeper or a veterinary nurse. It was hard to find an internship, and it stayed with the dream.
Instead I have had dogs or cats in my adult life.
Drawing and painting is my passion. I'm almost always in motif-finder mode.
When I sit at the drawing table in my cabin, and go into detail with pencil and inkpen, or let the watercolor flow from my brush, I am so comfortable. I also paint with acrylic and pastel.
I draw and paint all kinds of animals, wild and tame, from scales and feathers to thick fur. Plants and flowers are also found in my drawing universe.
It is my hope that my pictures will bring interest to the viewer. That my drawings and paintings convey my enthusiasm and joy for animals and nature.
I am self-taught, but have attended the School of Graphic Design, Graphic School and Art & Design, and participated in courses over the years. If you want to look at my drawing board or easel, visit my blog
I have exhibited in Denmark and England. I've been judged into several competitions. I have won a prize in England and good rankings in international competitions. Moreover, my art is published in books and calendars in England and the United States - please look at my CV page.
