The artist, Tammy Rekito, is a self taught artist. She grew up in a small town in Pennsylvania and has always been a creative person with arts and crafts, writing poetry, etc.
She first started painting on clothing and selling her merchandise out of her father's garage. She never thought about painting on canvas until 2011 when she posted pictures on facebook of the children's mural she did of the Frog Prince and was asked by a friend if she could paint them a painting if they provided a photograph. From then on, she built her business Wild Dagger Art solely on Facebook. She found her best work to be that of people's pets and so she did most of her marketing in the specific breed of animals groups in order to gain more of a following.
Rather than creating a page to have people go to, she encouraged people to friend her in order for them to see all of her future posts of artwork and all of their friends too!
If you would like to know more, friend her on facebook!
