My name is Leandra Ganko and I have been painting in pastels for over eight years.
My degree in biology with a visual arts minor has prepared me to paint the natural world. While I focused on flower paintings for many years, I was inspired to paint dogs after my husband and I rescued our mini schnauzer, Riesling.
While I love to paint all breeds, I have to admit my soft spot for terriers! :)
