Instantly recognizable, the brilliant, saturated colors of Pat Saunders-White;s animal paintings have established her as a national pet portrait artist. Pat brings an element of spontaneity, boldness and humor into a genre that is often stiff and photo realistic. Pat's big 'Ah-Ha!' moment was when she painted her first animal. Fourteen year later, she still finds this an exciting niche. The first animal paintings in this new style and technique gave her a feeling of 'coming home' after a long journey. Pat participates in juried national shows and presents workshops in her home studio and various workshop venues. She donates her work annually to non-profit fundraisers. - a black, orange and white cat.
