About DawgPainter

Hi there, I’m Lee! Thank you for being here. I am a professional artist specializing in animal-art featuring rainbow color palettes. I grew up watching Bob Ross, and as a child, found his quiet live-painting series to be soothing and magical. Bob taught me how important it is to sink into the moment, access the senses, nurture creativity, and practice stillness.

When I started doing my own live-stream paintings on Facebook in 2018, I received messages from several followers, telling me that the live streams had helped them work through panic attacks, bouts of depression, and self esteem issues. Many of my followers even began making their own pieces of art.

Since the start of my professional art career, I’ve always worked with animal rescues and sanctuaries, donating artwork for auction and merchandising to help raise money for direct care. Over the years, I’ve been able to help rescues and sanctuaries raise thousands of dollars for animals in need, something I’m very proud of. One of the missions of DawgArt has always been activism, raising awareness for animal rescue and advocacy. And recently, interacting with my followers on FB has shown me that my art can help people too, in ways I never anticipated. 

My own battle with mental illness has made me want to offer to others the same thing Bob Ross offered to me: the centering, inspiration, and calm that the consumption of happy art and personal creativity can bring.
 
This Patreon journey will consist of daily check ins on social media, tips and suggestions for pursuing an engaged, creative life, and original coloring pages as free downloads available to every patron. (Studies have shown that coloring can reduce stress and anxiety, as well as improve motor skills, focus, and sleep.) Patrons will also earn exclusive merchandise and have access to a patron-only Facebook group where exclusive content will be shared, along with giveaways not available to anyone else, and live stream painting.

I will still be posting original artwork, side by sides, time lapses, and happy new projects. And your support here will help me continue to make art for charity during these uncertain times when income is reduced. Your pledge will translate to original custom artwork to benefit animals in need.

This project is meant to uplift, inspire, and calm. There will be moments of vulnerability as I sometimes share personal experiences. I look forward to sharing this creative journey with you.
Goals
$252.05 of $300 per month
When I reach $300 per month, I'll create three new paintings for donation to Shy Wolf Sanctuary, including high-res digital images that the rescue can use for merch fundraising.
