She has worked at a car racetrack in the ticket booth, in a candy store, putting screws on car battery terminals, as a layout artist for newspapers, as a make-up artist and hair-stylist, as a rag picker, a seamstress and selling vintage clothing.

The piece shown above is one of over 40 pieces of original artwork featuring Wolverine donated to the Joe Shuster Awards for the Visions of an Icon Art Show and Sale by Canadian artists. The pieces were exhibited twice in 2009 – at the Joe Shuster Awards Ceremony in September and at the Speakeasy Comic Art Show in November. The original art pieces will be auctioned off on eBay in March 2010. Watch for announcements on this site!

Every day we will try to post an original piece and some information on the artist(s) that donated the work.
