About the artist: Nicole DiPierre
Nicole graduated from Muhlenberg College with a BA in Art and Anthropology. After working many years as an ER Veterinary Technician specializing in canine rehabilitation & massage, Nicole is currently enrolled in the University of Norther Colorado School of Nursing with the goal of completing her BSN.  She still enjoys painting and the balance it brings to her life.

Shiya was a magnificent being who touched every person he met and profoundly affected my life. He taught me these important life lessons: 
Be attentive and present; Do not be overly impressed with people's ego; Trust yourself, you already know the answer; Allow joy; Occasionally run wildly through meadows; Just because you can does not mean you must; and when you are unsure where your people are - just howl!

Shy Dog Studio was created to honor Shiya, the artist in me and the parts of you ready to be inspired.
