Meet Rebecca Fischer our one and only pet artist! Inspired by bright colors and pet photos she starts out her process with a pencil and outline of the pet and works on the eyes first. Capturing the personality and spirit of the animal is very important, as she is drawing people's pets. She is always sure to add a splash of the pet's heart in the artwork. Rebecca even drew our dog mascot, Milo! Her artwork truly does make you smile when you see it. Here at Kess Inhouse, we are true animal lovers! We have 3 dogs running around our offices on a regular basis. We feel so enthusiastic and happy to have Rebecca Fisher and her beautiful pet art with our product line.
KIH: What is your first memory as an artist?
RF: I started drawing late in life (in my 50s, a couple of years ago) and my first memory is being called an artist in front of my husband at an art show. He looked at me and said "You are an artist?"
KIH: What is your creative process?
RF: I draw from pet photos and start out in pencil and get an outline of the dog and work on the eyes first. I like to make sure the eyes are right to capture the spirit of the animal. Then, I move onto splashes of color and design. People love their pets, so I make sure there are hearts in the art.
KIH: What is your first and favorite medium?
RF: Art marker.
KIH: What is your favorite color right now?
RF: Multi-colored vibrant colors.
KIH: What common threads do you find show up in your work?
RF: There is always at least one heart in my art along with fun design and dots of color.
KIH: Tell us about your first show!
RF: I showed at a pet event with hundreds of dogs coming up and licking me. Every person who came into my booth smiled when they looked at my art and I knew if I can make people smile when they look at my art, I accomplished what I wanted my art to do.
KIH: Where do you do most of your work?
RF: I work out of my home surrounded by my 2 cats and with music on.
