When not doing art, I am a mad gardener, and also work with Huntsville Friends of Rabbits. We are a small group of rabbit lovers who have formed a 501 (c) 3 organisation to help rabbits turned in to our local shelters, and to educate the public on rabbit behavior and care. Over the past nine years my husband, Bruce, and I have fostered over 200 rabbits, and have found happy homes for almost all of them.
In 2010 I was awarded the Alabama Veterinary Medical Association's Bowie-Heath Humanitarian Award for this work. I was also interviewed extensively for Equal Hoppertunity, a film exploring the subject of rabbits and people's attitudes about them by director Rebecca A. Sansom. For anyone interested in rabbits this is an excellent film (and I'm not just saying that because I'm in it, either!)
