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. Sadly, both a passed after within 7 months of each other between June 2017 and Feb 2018. I was so lucky to have them as my muses for as long as I did!

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

Tattoo Mural Cuff • Feb 2017
Next, are my incredible, maternal grandparents from a college video interview they did for me. In 2014, I came across the raw footage on VHS, and with a nod to “When Harry Met Sally,” edited the interview together for the whole family to enjoy:
For Christmas 2014, my sister-in-law sent a box full of numbered presents. Each gift was to be opened on its corresponding day, counting down the 12 days of Christmas. Day 1 was a photo of our niece at age 8, along with a CD recording of her singing “Santa Baby” from that same year. I added old Super 8 footage from my childhood and edited this together:
