"My art has evolved many times in a variety of mediums. My passion is dogs. I have combined my love of color, mediums, technology and design with my love for animals and have finally found my niche. With a double major in Photography and Graphic Design, I took the graphics route but now have a new found love of the camera. My photographs portray the emotion I believe animals possess. My portraits convey the essence of the subjectís personality. I believe that dogs "have the soul of a philosopher," and I try to portray that in my work.Ē
Alene's work has been highlighted in publications such as The Crafts Report, Art Calendar cover, Boston Globe, The Nashua Telegraph, The Lowell Sun, Funeria Art Honors Life, Polymer Cafe and an HGTV segment on Thatís Clever.
