Portrait of Hobie, a Tibetan Terrier
Working out of her Chicago studio, Anne Leuck Feldhaus celebrates life with paint. Her simplified forms, sophisticated compositions and vivid color palettes provide a bold mix of contemporary folk and urban pop art. As a pet adoption advocate, Feldhaus uses her animal-themed art to encourage support of animal welfare and shelter organizations.
Self-taught in painting, Anne retains her childhood aesthetic, which was surely influenced by many Sunday mornings staring at the stained glass windows in a Catholic church. Her color sense was further developed mixing her own frosting colors while baking cutout cookies with her mother. Many of those colors still make up her palette today.
Anne has exhibited nationally in galleries, at fine art fairs, and on-line. Specializing in custom Dog and Pet Portraits, she is also an illustrator and has licensed her designs for stationery and home decor products. Her work has appeared on expressway billboards (in Kansas & Georgia), neighborhood banners, t-shirts, movies (The Number 23 and The Break Up) and even farm fields (an 11 acre field sculpture). Press includes features in publications such as The Chicago Tribune and The Chicago Sun-Times, Modern Dog and on programs such as Art Beat Chicago and Animal Planet. Anne’s works hang in private collections in over 30 U.S. States, as well as internationally.
