BORN: November 3, 1939 in Madison, Wisconsin.

Born in Madison and attended Madison West High School, Dennis Pearson later attended Milwaukee's Layton School of Art - now  Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design (MIAD).

At Layton, Dennis focused on painting and printmaking, winning prizes for painting in the Wisconsin Painters and Sculptors competition. He graduated in 1962, with a degree in Fine Art.

He continued his education at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts and at the University of Wisconsin in Madison, supporting himself through paintings. Pearson consistently drew his simple, unusual, fantasy animals.

In 1965, he met Andy Warhol in New York City to whom he described his creatures. Reportedly, Warhol encouraged Pearson to continue his development of the concept.
