ABOUT The artist, dina rae capitani
Dina Capitani's mission in this life is to connect people to their heart through her life and her art.
I recently got to share some of my journey as an artist on CanvasRebel Magazine.com! Check out the interview!
Doggie Doodles by Dina are caricature style animal portraits designed to make you smile and warm your heart! Each portrait or “doodle” celebrates the spirit and personality of a beloved pet and the unconditional love, joy and comic relief they bring to our lives.
Dina first began drawing "doggie doodles" when she was a young child in an attempt to conjure up the love and joy she felt around her beloved dog Sugar. She discovered that drawing dogs combated feelings of loneliness and boredom and gave her an emotional boost. Doggie doodling has since become a lifelong passion and thousands of doodles of various forms and expressions, including kitty doodles, birdie doodles, turtle doodles, dolphin doodles and more have emerged from her pen, many she has paired with a corresponding caption that convey a double entendre (i.e. "Wuf's Up?" "Dog is Love, "Embrace Your Inner Dog and more.)
Painting Custom Pet Caricature Portraits continue to be a way Dina connects to her heart and the pure joy and love she feels for dogs, cats and other animals.
She also leads PLAYSHOPS where she guides others into connection with their hearts and and love and joy they feel for their beloved fur babies through "The Joy of Doggie Doodling"
Dina is also a musician, singer/songwriter, community builder, compassionate activist and Nature Meditation guide.

The signature heart represents the explosion of love I feel in the presence of our beloved pets. The creation of doggie doodles was born out of the desire to express and embody that love. May the doodles bring as many smiles to your face as they have to mine!
For the love of dog,
Dina Rae Capitani
