Fascinated with the dogs' different personalities, artist and painter Justine Osborne BA specialises in oil paintings of dogs. She successfully conveys the spirit and depth of expression that is unique to each dog, creating eye-catching and contemporary canine images. Justine has painted many subjects over the years, but it is the exuberance and lust for life which dogs have, that inspires her to paint them over and over again. "I enjoy the colours of dogs, their shape, their intensity of expression. Cross-breed or pure bred, every dog has its own challenges. Working with the owners allows for an insight into each dog's personality and the great effect they have on our lives. An irreplaceable bond occurs between owner and dog, and I always feel privileged to create images that represent such special relationships." Justine takes her influences from many different artists, her favourites including: Stubbs, Lucian Freud, David Hockney, Jenny Saville and Morandi.
