I'm falling in love with the beauty of tigers! Their striking markings and long faces and those intense eyes. With this painting I took the "close-up cat head" theme I already have going (where I paint just the close-up features of a domestic cat) and applied it to a beautiful tiger. Such beautiful animals and lots of fun to paint!

Getting to Know J.

Growing up in Southern California, J. Dunster got her start in the art world by selling celebrity portraits to fans - and sometimes even the celebs themselves. She moved on to study drawing, anatomy, and painting at Otis College of Art & Design, and now specializes in oil paintings of portraits, figures and animals. She paints to find the beauty and nobility in things, capturing emotion, drama and silliness. She says quite a few of her models act surprised by what they see in her portraits, “as if I discovered something more noble or beautiful in them. But it's not a put-on, that *is* what I see in them.”
