My wide experience with a variety of horse breeds has allowed me to draw on a detailed knowledge of the horse in all its beauty of form and motion, and I feel my drawings and paintings reflect that experience.
Growing up on a dairy farm in southwest Wisconsin also allowed me to observe wildlife in nature and the love of animals is expressed in my drawings and paintings. My husband, Ray, and I also raised cougars for a time and that has provided an insight into the world of big cats and how they look and behave from birth through adulthood.
I work in pencil and acrylics.
This is a 9 x 12 acrylic in a private collection. I used an odd technique for this one, because I modeled the whole thing in heavy titanium white paint and then glazed colors in. I kinda think it worked! What do you think?
