Dinah Swan


I have painted flowered fields, rushing streams, ancient streets and glistening grapes. I’ve done portraits, cathedrals and abstracts, but I most love painting animals.

I depict animals as noble, innocent but vulnerable partners with us. We should learn to view this earth--water, air, plants and animals--as one interdependent organic system whose beauty and energy sustain, delight and inspire human kind.

We have a voice about what happens to animals in the future. I believe we should use that voice to speak for animals who cannot speak for themselves.
