Through the process of adopting and fostering Siberian Huskies over the years in Flagstaff, Arizona and during my training as a veterinary nurse in Ireland, Norway and Sweden, I met many misplaced working dogs. My conviction was reinforced that dogs need a purpose in life without which they can end up mischievous, bored and depressed, just like us. Running with my dogs through the beautiful Ponderosa pine forest trails and boating on the River Shannon in the Midlands of Ireland, I was inspired to write and illustrate the Tikaboo Tales and to paint the lovely scenery around us.
Long may our canine companions continue to bring out the best in us!
