Amy Brazil is an award-winning artist who creates original paintings of dogs characterized by the emotions and humor captured in the canines’ expressions. Enhancing these imaginative and distinctive creations, Brazil incorporates Swarovski crystals, various metals, and semi-precious gemstones.[1]

Brazil is a lifelong resident of the U.S. state of Minnesota and presently maintains a studio and home in Minneapolis. She also has a gallery and home in Naples, Florida.

Brazil is the artist commissioned by Target Corporation to paint Bullseye, their mascot.[2] The 8-foot by 8-foot painting of Bullseye, which now hangs in Target's corporate headquarters in Minneapolis, has the rings over Bullseye's left eye, set on a red background covered in Swarovski crystals.[3]
