2nd Hanky Babette Angelle

digital text, stitching, stamp and covered in bees wax.


  1. This work remembers the 6000 greyhounds that go missing each year in New South Wales, Australia. Once their racing careers are over, or they are too slow to even make the grade to begin training they are dumped, shot or euthanaised. Some of the lucky ones are retired as family pets or help out in nursing homes, some trainers and owners keep their valued and loyal Greyhounds. When people die they are registered and this notation is in reference to remember my late brother which is another story.
    Here's a link,
    be warned, the images are not pleasant, of a woman in Florida who shot over 2000 greyhounds that were found in a mass grave. There are rumours of farmers doing the same in Northern New South Wales.
