Jack Russell Terrier

Meet Sadie! My mom commissioned this Jack Russell Terrier for her friend. Sadie is her friend's dog, and she's just precious. You can see the real Sadie in the background photograph; and my rendition is made of 100% sheep's wool.

My studies focused on the understanding that direct experiences with wilderness and the natural world foster compassion and a sense of place.
