I believe, as the Native Americans do, that horses are spiritual, mystical creatures. They speak to the certain wildness in our own souls. I hope to capture some of that spirit in each of my pieces. Horses are characters and have such unique personalities. I want to portray horses doing what horses do naturally- not what we, as caretakers, make them do.
Veryl Goodnight’s “Spirit Horse” at the Leanin’ Tree Western Museum in Boulder, Colorado inspired me to take her workshop and begin bronze sculpting. I found I have a natural ability for three dimensional works. From there, I have taken various classes and workshops around the country.
I belong to the American Academy of Equine Art, associate Women Artists of the West and several art guilds.
Some awards include Denver Arts in Business, Depot Fine Arts Gallery and Lone Tree Fine Arts Exhibit. My work is in private collections in the USA and Europe. I will expand into museum collections in the near future.
Spirits in the Wind Gallery in Golden, Colorado (www.spiritsinthewindgallery.com), and Desert Feather Gallery in Wickenburg, AZ handles my gallery sales.
