Peers grew up working in kennels and drew dog portraits, a secret pleasure, throughout her life. During Peers’ graduate studies, she was told to paint “the most embarrassing thing you can think of,” which led to her series of dog portraits inspired by the purebreds featured on dog food labels. They are executed on old covers from sofas and chairs Peers found on the streets of Los Angeles.
