Artist Profile: Rebecca Rowsell

The 2014 Paws For Charity Project involves a few "local" participants as well as artists from around the world. Today I'd like to introduce you to Rebecca Rowsell, one of our local photographers, and a big supporter of SHAID, the animal shelter that this project raises money for.

 Where do you live? What made you want to contribute to this project?
I live in Barss Corner, Nova Scotia. The animal shelter, SHAID is very important to me, I know first hand how important the work there is and how many homeless animals they help each year. I started as a volunteer 3 years ago, began working there 2 years ago and continue to donate many hours a week of my time to the shelter. Part of the volunteering I do at SHAID is fundraising, being a part of this great book is an opportunity for me to show my continued support for SHAID. 

What are some things, people, or places that inspire you?
I am always inspired by animals, all sorts of animals. I love to photograph dogs and cats, it is an amazing thing to capture their beauty, personality and expressions. I am fortunate to live on a river and daily photograph the many animals and all the beauty around them. Animals are truly amazing and inspiring. 

Tell us about a current project you are working on?
I am currently working on a very special project, a fundraiser for my sister's Relay For Life team, Tina's Tigers. They are planning a fun/family day to raise money for cancer research and I was asked to do a photo booth. I am honored and excited to contribute by donating my time and all supplies to this in honor of my Sister. I will have lots of props for all ages and it is sure to be a fun and successful fundraiser for another great cause.
