My sculptures are known for capturing the heart, soul and very essence of one of our greatest treasures – the horse.My bronzes can be found among collectors throughout the United States, Europe and South America with two perpetual trophies in England and South Africa.
My passion for capturing an individual horse’s character and conformation is evident in my commissioned pieces that range from sculptures of National Champions to the monument at Thoroughbred Motor Cars. Martin Bennett, President of Thoroughbred Motor Cars, says “I managed to absorb the philosophy which drives their company and express it through the marvelous interpretation of the horse on our logo.”
Growing up in Colorado, I dreamed of horses in her youth. “My early drawing and painting set the stage for my wish to become an artist. I was always fascinated with animals, horses in particular. Many of my paintings or sculptures are inspired by my own horses, poetry, a song, or sometimes just a comment I’ve heard. It is always my goal for the viewer to see a subject that breathes life.”
I was the winner of the prestigious Marilyn Newmark Memorial Award for realism at the 2013 American Women Artists 25th Annual Juried Art Show for the bronze ”Cheval” I was also was awarded the Presidents Award at the Women Artists of the West 45th Annual Juried Art Show for the bronze “Galileo” This was the first time that this award was presented to a sculptor.
In describing the bronze “Ponies Before the Storm,” one collector says, Horses run through the artists hands…and she stops them in bronze so we can touch them.”
