I am extremely honored when people ask me to do a commissioned piece of art for them. It is really cool to get to meet dogs and cats (and their people) from all over the world! My digital paintings are printed as Giclee Fine Art Reproductions (prints). They are simply the most sophisticated method of print production on earth. All the materials used are museum grade and archival.
I love dogs. I love all animals. That is why I am an animal/wildlife artist with a love of pet portraits...especially dogs! I work digitally to capture the silly, lovable, poignant, and surprisingly human side to our animal friends...and furry family members.
“Dane has a remarkable ability to capture the personality of animals in his work. The portrait he did of our Australian Shepherd, Wilson, is one of the most prized pieces of art in our home. Dane truly has a gift.”
“My husband and I are beyond happy with our artwork from Dane! He did a beautiful job capturing our corgi’s features, it looks exactly like him. It’s something we’ll cherish forever. We get so many compliments when people see the painting hanging in our home!”
“Dane was great to work with, easy to communicate with via email, quick response. I sent him several pictures to work on and he was able to show me several examples before I had to commit. Amazing purchase, my photo art made a beautiful birthday present for my husband. Would order again!”
“Not only is Dane’s art amazing, but you’ll never find a better person or character in your life. And this comes from someone who worked in customer service for over 10 years.”
My name is Dane Youkers. I work from my home studio in Pittsburgh, PA with my wife; three kids; my dog, Gus; two cats, Lucy and Rigby; and a bearded dragon named Kevin.
