Gender FEMALE
Occupation Artist, Volunteer Dog Guide Foster Puppy "Mom" and Retired Special Education Teacher
Location Ontario, Canada
Introduction I am a fibre and mixed media artist who works primarily with my own hand-dyed fabrics, fibres and threads. I enjoy creating unique pieces using various surface design techniques. In the spring of 2006 my friend Heather and I started the 'Group of Eight Fibre Artists’ or GOE (rhymes with toe) as we refer to ourselves. We meet monthly, inspiring and challenging one another in our art. I also enjoy photography and art journalling and I try to make time for art daily. I say try, because all of this art is fit into my volunteer role as a foster 'Mom' to Future Dog Guides which I raise for the Lions Foundation of Canada Dog Guides. I raise these incredible puppies from 6 1/2 weeks until they are about 10 to 12 months old, teaching them all of their basic commands and socializing them, getting them ready for life as a working guide dog for one of six roles: Canine Vision, Hearing Ear, Autism Assistance, Seizure Response, Diabetic Alert or Service Dog for the Physically or Medically Disabled.
