While at a party for the launch of a friend’s business, The Farmer's Dog - a subscription service for delicious custom dog food, I met a woman who had been hired to draw some of the guests at the party. I don't mean the kind of guests you might be thinking of, but the canine kind.  Carrie Krieger was there with pencil in hand to draw the furry guys and boy did she impress the Siz.  Here is a bit of insight into the great work that she does.

TELL ME ABOUT YOU, HAVE YOU ALWAYS DRAWN?

"I have.  I was a doodler as a kid, never really thought of myself as an artist when I was little but always loved to draw and drew all the time.  As I got older, I found a love for drawing and painting and began to pursue my passion late in high school.

SCHOOL ETC?

I went to the university of Colorado, Boulder and majored in Art History with a minor in painting.

WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DRAW BESIDES DOGS?

Everything!  I have started to draw homes and various watercolors for general commissions and wedding invitations which has been a new fun venture.  I also draw babies!

DO YOU HAVE A DOG?

I don't!  How weird am I?! Some day I will definitely be getting one, hopefully in the near future!

IF YOU DONT AND YOU GOT ONE WHAT KIND WOULD IT BE?

I grew up with a Sheltie, but I have always been a sucker for pugs. Who doesn't love a pug?!  I can't get enough.

IF PEOPLE WANT THEIR OWN CUSTOM DRAWING...
