Using the power of art, the purpose of this project was to represent the many shelter dogs throughout Brisbane, and inspire Australians to adopt one of these animals. Having been a dog owner most of my life, I understand the unique bond that humans and dogs share. There is no doubt that humans benefit from the company of dogs and they, in turn, thrive on human contact and friendship. A dog without a home is a tragic creature. In collaboration with AWLQLD (Animal Welfare League of Queensland) my aim was to capture 100 dogs on canvas that have come through the shelter through 2016-17 and share their unique souls with the world.
