Artist Paints Portraits on Pennies

Denise Fisher, a US-based artist and the owner of a small business called Crooked Tree, uses pennies as canvases. According to the artist, she has gone from painting murals and large canvases, to plucking hairs from her brushes to paint small portraits on coins.

“I guess you can say my priorities have shifted,” the artist shared with Bored Panda. “I started painting with the same dream so many artists have, the one of gallery showings and constant praise, along with a hefty paycheck. But now, I’ve realized that making others happy with such a tiny painting brings more joy than an impersonal canvas shipped to an unknown buyer.”

Fisher mostly paints adorable pet portrait, however, in her collection you can find other creatures and characters such as the Seven Dwarf, Mickey Mouse, etc.
