Thank you for checking out Spotted Dog Art Studio! I am Dan Masello, and the studio is named for my spotted dog, Samson. My two lifelong passions have been art and the exploration of the natural world. Spotted Dog Art Studio is where these pursuits overlap. I have had the great fortune to work and travel throughout many of North America's wilder places, from the Hudson Bay to the Pacific Ocean and many locales in between. The landscapes, flora, and fauna I have encountered (or someday hope to!), provide the basis for the art of Spotted Dog Art Studio.
