Louise Peterson, Danesculptor

The Online Gallery of Louise Peterson

"As a long time Great Dane owner, I see in these dogs a combination of playful goofiness and regal elegance. As a sculptor I see also a magnificent combination of long bones, muscled limbs, folds of skin, and dynamic movement.

I donate a portion of my sales to rescue groups helping Great Danes less fortunate than my own.

It is my desire to show the uncropped ear of the Great Dane as beautiful and elegant. Both artistically and ethically I think the ears should remain the soft velvet triangles they were meant to be."
