Artist and teacher Katrina Wheaton’s adopted greyhound Amy is her art muse. Katrina has incorporated Amy into her visual art lessons with students throughout her teaching career.
Amy has been recreated into nearly every art form, every 'ism', every medium.
Through hound art, students are educated about all types of artists, different art forms and how to work with many mediums as well as highlight the welfare and care of rescue pets.
Every style, every medium, every 'ism', every hound.
