Design Spotlight: Vernita Bridges Hoyt

November 20, 2012

Today’s Design Spotlight shines on Vernita Bridges Hoyt, an artist with cute, original paintings of dogs and other animals! This particular card won the Design of the Day award on GCU.


I’m a 5th generation native Texan who paints and photographs Texas’ animals, flowers, people, and places. My cards are original designs based on my original paintings or photos.

My best seller has been Chef Dachsie, a Thanksgiving card which features my original oil painting of the same name. The original painting was sold to help homeless dogs. Although I have painted for 55 years, I only committed to a professional painting routine in 2001 when I was juried into the original Daily Painters gallery site.
