Kamala Dolphin-Kingsley is a Portland, Oregon-based artist whose custom dog portraits are unlike any I’ve seen before. Her paintings have a magical, almost transcendental quality; the worlds and creatures that inhabit them seemingly depicted through a lens of childlike wonder — which makes perfect sense for someone who spent the days of their youth taking goats on walks though giant Redwood forests; creating communal banana slug, newt and centipede farms; and “dressing up pet rats and making them ride the dog”.
