Arabian & Western Horse Art

My love for horses started at a very young age while living in the country in Nebraska. I would walk for miles just for the opportunity to ride a pony and be near them.

I had no idea that I had the ability to paint horses or anything to this extent. That was until I saved two starving Arabian mares just 5 years ago. 

I was encouraged to do a painting by a young, well know Arabian horse trainer, who I had met while trying to help the mares.  The painting I did for him, which was displayed during his "Farm Tour Party" was "The White Horse", pictured here.  I received a commission that night, and my career was born.

I believe my God given natural ability to paint horses with so much realism and feeling, was a gift finally realized because I saved my mares. They have changed my life, my career and my world. I owe it all to them, and that young horse trainer who encouraged me. 

Thank you for visiting my page and following my journey.
