NO ONE WAS HURT IN THE CONFRONTATION. NEW AT 10:00 TONIGHT, SHE’S A NURSE BY DAY AND ARTIST BY NIGHT. SHE CREATES ONE OF A KIND SCULPTURES OF DOGS AND CATS AND HER WORKS OF ART ARE HELPING PET OWNERS HEAL. JAMIE GOT TO SEE THE WORK FOR HERSELF. SHE IS CREATING LASTING MEMORIES OF DOGS AND CATS. Reporter: SHE REALLY IS AND HASN’T BEEN ON THE SCULPTING SCENE FOR VERY LONG, BUT THEY ARE TAKING OFF. SHE IS MAKING A BIG DEBUT HERE AT THE PET EXPO AT THE END OF THE MONTH AND IT IS PROBABLY BECAUSE HER SCULPTURES MAKE PEOPLE SMILE. THAT’S HER ULTIMATE GOAL. NOW SHE WANTS TO SHOW OTHERS HOW TO DO THIS. I THINK I’M NATURAL WITH ART IN GENERAL. Reporter: NATURAL IS AN UNDERSTATEMENT. JOANNE HAS THE ABILITY TO CAPTURE AN UNCANNY LIKENESS IN JUST EIGHT TO 10 INCHES. WITH THIS ONE, THE CLIENT WANTS ME TO CREATE A DISGUISE URN HIDING IN THE BLANKET. Reporter: AS A LONG TERM CARE NURSE, SHE STARTED SCULPTING TO. I CREATE THE HEAD SLIGHTLY BIGGER AND ADD FUN TO IT. Reporter: TAKE IT FROM HER CLIENTS. A PHOTOGRAPH IS ONE THING. A SCULPTURE JUST IS MORE EMOTIVE. Reporter: WHEN TINY COCONUT PASSED AT 18 YEARS OLD, SHE WANTED TO DO SOMETHING FOR HER BOYFRIEND ANDREW. IT IS REALLY YOUR DOG. NOT EVERY SCULPTURE OF AN ANIMAL IS THIS REALISTIC. THIS IS TINY COCONUT. Reporter: NOW JOANNE AS HER FIRST BOOK. SHE’S BEEN IN BUSINESS ONLY A YEAR, BUT THE DOGS ARE IN HIGH DEMAND, SO THE BOOK HOW DO IT YOURSELF. I CANNOT POSSIBLY CREATE SCULPTURES FOR THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE, SO I WOULD LIKE TO EMPOWER PEOPLE TO CREATE. Reporter: THE NEW COVER IS HER VERY OWN FRENCHY PETRI. IT’S HARD WORK, DEFINITELY HARD WORK, BUT I LOVE IT. Reporter: ONE OF HER BIG GOALS DOWN THE ROAD IS TO TEACH SCULPTING CLASSES TO YOUNGER GENERATIONS. YOU CAN CHECK HER OUT AT THE NATIONAL WESTERN CONFERENCE AT THE PET EXPO AUGUST 17 AND 18.
