Sally Muir

Artist Sally Muir is based in Bath, UK and is a prodigious portrait painter of dogs. Other subjects include human portraits and landscapes, as well as the occasional rodent and bird. Ms. Muir returned to university as a mature student with a concentration on Fine Art. Children’s portraits gave way to dog portraits as is evidenced in her 365 Facebook dog-fest “A Dog A Day”. A Dog A Day book based on the series with 365 artworks of dogs — all shapes, sizes, breeds and mixes — is available through Amazon. Anthropologie, the clothing and décor store has commissioned Muir to create dishes, pillows, wall paper and tea towels. A recipient of many awards, Muir’s work appears regularly in galleries. She welcomes and enjoys commission work — dogs and humans alike.
