Pet PortraitsThis is a picture of one of my recent pet portraits, an English Cocker Spaniel,. I put it by the side of the real dog. Although it isn't photo accurate, I try to capture the spirit of dog.

- Wire Art Ink
- Antonia Hansen has been making both fine art and crafts all her life. She grew up in a blue collar family that loved to craft. She came from a long line of crocheters dating back to her Great Grandmother. She was exposed to fine art by her Dad's mom on the other side of the family. As a result she walks the fine line between art and craft. Antonia has a Bachelors degree in Music and BA in Art from San Francisco State University. She has worked in several mediums which include: graphite, ink, water color, acrylic paint, oil paint, charcoal, dry pastels, ceramics, paper-mache, jewelry design, knitting, and crocheting. She began working with wire six years ago. While doodling a lot during meetings at work a co-worker suggested that the drawings really lent themselves to wire. That little comment was just the thing to set fire to an idea and push the wire work into motion.
