This Jack Russel Terrier Has 20 Solo Art Shows, a Jazz Band, Biography, and Documentary

Alessandra Rizzotti

This 14-year-old renaissance dog may accomplish more than a human in one lifetime. Tillamook has been exhibited all over the United States and Europe with her carbon paper pencil drawings. Owner Bowman Hastie noticed Tillamook's skill when the dog started scratching on a notepad. Now, Tillamook has collaborated with 25 artists, including Tom Sachs, Jon Kessler, Dirk Westphal, Andrew Kromelow, Diane Dwyer, and Ricardo Cortés. She also has her own jazz band. You can read her biography 'Portrait of the Dog as a Young Artist', and a documentary is coming out soon.
