Editorial artwork I created a few weeks ago for International Women's Day to celebrate and honor all those amazing women who make the world better each and every day. I am eternally grateful for the women before me who fought for my rights.

Animal illustrations by Chris Olson
I am an illustrator and designer, but I am also passionate about my work as a dog adoption counselor for a dog rescue organization here in Colorado. Finding forever homes for dogs is so rewarding. Not only do I get plenty of puppy kisses, I have the privilege to give a voice to our canine companions who truly appreciate their human family with unconditional love. These shelter dogs teach me so many things about resilience and compassion. A dog who is homeless is so much more than a needy dog--he could be your new best friend. As the saying goes, I didn't rescue the shelter dog, the dog rescued me.
