Artist Paige Gemmel

I’d say I am an equal animal lover, lol. I love nature and animals and depicting them in unusual or eclectic ways.

I’ve always loved horses and spending time around them. I love being in their presence and find them one of the most emotionally expressive animals.

I used to paint primarily people and mainly watercolors. When my fourth child was born, I started painting the Staffordshire dogs in my quirky, colorful style, which evolved into many other animals. I wanted to paint things I would like to hang in my home. I like a lot of white and neutral in my surroundings and clothing with pops of bright color.

I find inspiration everywhere. It can be a room with fantastic color combinations, textiles, flowers, plants, vintage illustrations, costume illustrations, timeless children’s books, beautiful packaging, or vintage labels.
