Hi, I'm Mackenzie Dunn a Communication Designer from Carnegie Mellon University Class of 2016 interested in Visual Design & User Experience.
I create unique and personalized watercolors of houses and properties. I take the image and make a copy of that image in watercolor. Done by hand with additions and changes to the image to create a clear composition. Painted handmade paper around 8x13 with loose edges.
Using acrylic paintings of many colors and styles, I create one of a kind portraits of your family's best friend. I take a image of your dog in their most recognizable form (on their belly, stretching, sitting, jumping, etc.) and make a clear image of the dog. Accompanied by the name of your dog and a phrase that would best describe your dog.
