Originally from Lexington, Kentucky; Alexandrea (Alex) Pangburn moved to Golden, Colorado in September of 2017.
Alex graduated with an Animal Science degree from the University of Kentucky in 2010, but her commission art business didn’t really kick off until she was working at a veterinary clinic in Powell, Ohio. Her commission pet portraits grew and she was booking out almost an entire year in advance before she decided to close her books and focus on taking her art in a direction she wanted to go. Alex decided her business needed a name and decided to name it after the two animals that were her biggest inspiration; her dog Benson, and her horse Dude – hence B&D Pet Portraits.
When Alex moved to Golden, Colorado in 2017, she started to work with the RiNo Art District. It was here she was able to tap into large scale pieces and murals. Her first spray paint mural was during CRUSH Walls 2018 and has since painted over a dozen murals here in Colorado and one in Kentucky. Her passion for flora + fauna reigns in her work and she hopes to continue to bring light to species that people may or may not be able to see at such a large scale.

As a homegrown Coloradan with a passion for keeping the spirit of our state alive and well, I started this podcast to bring the people of Colorado together to celebrate the amazing state we call home!
Come along on this journey with me as I travel across our state in my vintage RV, interviewing folks who embody the true spirit of the Rocky Mountains. From the front range to the mile-high city, to the mountain towns and the Wild West of southern Colorado, we’ll celebrate the history, beauty, and Coloradans that make this place the colorful state it is!
Each week, you’ll meet the people trailblazing the way for an even more colorful future for us all, and who are making a huge difference along the way.
