About the artwork
The inspiration behind Sophi's dog was derived from her vision of evening fireworks, and the lucky red and gold that is synonymous with Chinese New Year. This piece is about bringing joy and appreciation with colour and detail to celebrate the Year of the Dog, whilst supporting and creating awareness for Guide Dogs NSW/ACT.
