Me & McDuff: How a Dog Inspired My Journey to a Creative Life
Written by Leslie Oschmann, Foreword by Keith Johnson
Eat Pray Love meets Beloved Dog in this gift book about how an artist discovered an authentic, creative life—thanks to an adventurous dog.
This is the story of a woman who had two lifelong wishes: to own a dog, and to make art by hand every day, the way she had as a child.
As her career blossomed, and the years passed, she started to miss working with pencils, paper, scissors, and fabric. She wondered: Is this who I want to be? Is this what I want to do? Amsterdam beckoned and, after settling in, she adopted a terrier named McDuff. Together they explored the city and found all the inspiration they needed. With her canine muse at her side, she started living in he present—and making art again.
Filled with vibrant photo collages, Me & McDuff is an irresistible book for anyone who suspects that a dog is the answer to all of life’s important questions.
