Founder & CEO

My name is Ginger. I make my home in the beautiful Annapolis Valley in Nova Scotia, Canada.

I am a trained musician and educator and fell in love with dot painting after exploring the Aboriginal artwork of Australia with my grade 5/6 elementary class. That was in May of 2015. I have since followed my passion and intuition, allowing Otauna’s programs, products, and services to blossom.

Tool Production

Steve, Ginger's life partner, created what would be the prototype of our first dotting tools for her birthday in August 2015. He now coordinates the production of hundreds sets of dotting tools a week that travel as far and wide as the Travelling Kindness Rocks.




Lisa is our front line of communications, responding to emails, organizing event lists, and responding to Travelling Kindness Rocks requests. With her years of experience in marketing and her in depth understanding of the development of Otauna, Lisa plays a critical role in planning, promotion, and other aspects of our evolution.




With years of administrative experience, Luella oversees the bookkeeping, tracks funds raised through various initiatives, and handles payroll. She also hand writes the personal notes from those who request a Travelling Kindness Rock for a loved one and addresses the corresponding envelopes.
