Dave Plank Artist Interview

What a pleasure it was to interview Dave Plank, winner of our November 2014 Featured Artist Contest. He is the only artist thus far that I’ve met prior to this occasion. We’ve been handling the printing and framing for Dave for several years now, and last summer, he, his wife and their puppy paid us a visit at our Showroom.

Diesel, by David Plank


Everyone at American Frame loves Dave. He is serious about his art and takes a very thoughtful and intellectual approach to his subjects and his craft.  Passionate about animals, pets in particular, he conversed with me at length. We talked about how he decided to start his business PremierPetPortraits.com, the challenges of being a self supporting artist, how he thinks about his subjects, and then ends with some constructive feedback on our website, which I always appreciate. Read the entire interview.

He does nice work and it sounds like he's got a good business started. I know a couple people that would be all over having this done.
