The daughter of a naval officer in the submarine force, Dagmar Cosby was born on the Hawaiian Island of Oahu. A childhood filled with traveling certainly contributed to her artistic sensitivity. Her artwork displays an almost childlike, fun loving imagination refined by a unique use of color that is integral to her style.
Embraced by the equine community, Dagmar was commissioned by The Virginia Gold Cup to create their 1987 Spring Race Poster. The Washington International Horse Show followed suite , by commissioning her to design their 1988 and 1989 Show posters. The Beresford Gallery displayed her paintings in Saratoga and West Palm Beach. Last but not least she was asked by Susan Wight to illustrate her book about Lulu, the pot bellied pig.
She now illustrates tests developed by the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence. The test takers are automotive technicians wishing to know if they are at the top of their game in the current market. American College Testing (ACT) administers the test. The credential earned by passing these tests is one worth looking for by the consumer. Dagmar's experience with the computer allows her to doodle fabulous designs which may be used for a myriad of products, some of which may be seen on the home page of this website.
Her greatest desire is to help you create something totally unique using one of the designs on the website or one which compliments your product or home furnishing. Talk to her. She would love to hear from you.
