Horses are important to me in so many ways, and on so many levels. I have held a love for them for as far back as I can remember in my childhood. I am not certain exactly how my fascination with them began, only to say that I have always felt a unique and good force when I am with them. They give me a sense of place, and a feeling of being grounded. I feel their energy on a physical, emotional, and even a spiritual level.
I want to continue to push myself as an artist, and to continue to create work that pushes me to keep asking questions. I am vigilantly striving to keep viewing the world through different eyes, and I want that to show up in my work. A constant exploration of form, use of color, and continuing to make new marks, keeps my mind fresh with new questions, searching for more answers, and finding new directions. Horses will always be a very powerful, and positive, presence in my life. I feel blessed and honored to have the opportunity to paint them, and to have the chance to establish the connections that I have with these magnificent creatures.
