Visual artist Sue Wurzel is known for creating paintings, illustrations and hair-clad relief portraits of one's pet. Using a non-shedding dog's hair pieces, the artist creates furry pet depictions that are both lifelike and soft to one's touch.

Sue begins her process by mounting pet hair onto a woven background. She works best with dogs whose hair is not one solid color but instead multi-hued, adding more dimension and depth to her creations.

Whether depicting a Tibetan terrier or Portuguese water dog, artist Sue Wurzel creates these imaginative, bizarre and extremely lifelike portraits using your domestic pet's hair. Sue's custom and commissioned pieces vary in price amount according to one's desired size of the artist's unique portraits.
