Self–taught artist, Brian Dowdall, was born in Anaconda, Montana, where he spent his childhood hiking in the mountains. Inspired by nature, he has been creating animal spirit and goddess art for over 30 years. He’s traveled the US and Mexico, using as materials house paint on newspapers, as well as tempura on cardboard. You’ll find some of his joyful animal work on our Cinnamon and Crescent Rolls canisters. A self-described intuitive painter, Brian also creates sea creature sculptures from brown papers bags, sand, and various glues. His work is widely collected and internationally distributed.
