Logan Berard was born and raised in south Louisiana. She earned a bachelor’s degree in Interior Design. After graduation, it dawned on her that she would rather be an artist than an interior designer. She had always wanted to paint people portraits, but discovered she was not very good at it so she painted a cow. Since then, she has painted a myriad of animals including ostriches, llamas, donkeys, and ducks. Her goal is to make people smile, which she does by turning the subjects of her paintings into humorous characters. Every now and then, she takes a break from acrylic animal portraits and moves to ink and watercolor. Born out of her love for architecture and design, she creates whimsical ink and watercolor illustrations that she fondly refers to as “Random Dwellings”. She has had several art shows, both of her animal portraits and “Random Dwellings, and has had much success selling her paintings on Etsy.
