Dede Gold(Irish, b. 1971)
Dede Gold is most known for her masterful depictions of dogs. The four legged muses tend to be hounds and mutts instead of the usual poodles and purebreds. Gold is able to translate each subject’s colorful personality to canvas, meeting the dogs in kennels on their downtime to find each dog’s quirks and distinctive character traits. Horses are her new focus, Gold drawing inspiration from her years spent in close proximity to some of the finest flat racing pedigrees.
