The genesis of my PawPrint Art  came from my sweet and hilarious beagle mixes: Roxy Roker & Shirley Nubbins. They brought me joy and made me laugh for over 14 years.

Dreams become reality, well, Artistic Reality, when my God Daughter Darby had a dream of riding a “Unicorn Roxy in Space!” I named it “Darby’s Disco Dreamland.” 2 Versions: The Original and Bedazzled (and Framed version for the Gods—she turned 5, y’all!) And I curated a CD of Modern Hits heavily influenced by the disco era. I designed full CD packaging using the art from the original piece. Its a really fun mix. I listen to it all the time
