I create realistic animal portraits, I write about and draw whimsical characters for picture books, and I teach people how to draw those things with my online courses.

Have you caught my Facebook Lives at Christine Dion Art Studio?  Every Tuesday at 7PM, come hang out with me for an hour as I work on my latest projects!

October is traditionally known in the illustration world as "Inktober".  However, I'm renaming it to "Puptober" and I'm creating 31 miniature pen and ink portraits of puppy faces.  All will be posted on Instagram and my Facebook pages.

K9 Timber is the K9 officer for the Hooksett, NH police department.  He and his partner, Officer Jordan McCluskey are keeping Hooksett safe and sound!

K9 Timber's portrait was created for a magazine article that will be featured in the January issue of "To The Point", put out by the Colored Pencil Society of America.

K9 Oakley is the newest member of the NH State Police.  She is a 10 week old Plott Hound and she will begin her training with Tr. Brett Barry.  She will specialize in Search and Rescue!

K9 Oakley's portrait was created for a raffle that took place at the NH Canine Trooper's Association annual golf tournament on Sept. 23.  Her portrait took 4 hours to create from the layout on the paper to framing it!  (She was already sketched out on drawing paper.)  The man that won it graciously gave it to Tr. Barry and he now has a beautiful portrait of his partner hanging in his home!
