About the Artist
About Me - That Horse Artist
My artwork celebrates the role of the horse in our history, our imagination, and our world. From Conestoga Wagons to the Pony Express to the Triple Crown - horses are a part of our heritage. Their stories are our stories. I'm on a mission to explore as many of those horse stories as I can.
If you like the nostalgic horse drawn carriage scenes produced by Currier and Ives, you will love my work! These beautiful pieces have a vintage feel - the perfect complement to your antiques and family heirlooms.
I am honored to have been featured in Art Calendar and Horses in Art magazines. Currently, my pieces are in private collections all over the world.
I grew up in a small town in western New York with lots of historic buildings, antique shops, and family farms. I didn't have a horse of my own, so I mucked stalls at a stable down the road, took lessons, and went riding whenever I could.
I started drawing and painting at an early age - winning my first art contest at age six - and was routinely in trouble for covering my homework in horse doodles. Since I didn't seem to be very good at anything else, studying art and design in college seemed like a good idea.
Horseworks was officially launched in 2004. Since then, I've offered my work for sale at various art festivals and, of course, directly from the studio.
Today, my husband and I live in South Carolina - in an area with many historic homes and picturesque farms. I *still* don't have a horse of my own, but I can paint as many of them as I like, and I still ride whenever I can.
