    “Whether I am working in clay or paint, I like to accurately depict the anatomy of a horse in conjunction with an impressionistic style. This allows viewers to feel the emotions of a horse, yet draw their own conclusions about the narrative being presented.”


On The Bit  – Limited Edition 12 Bronze Sculpture

As a collector of antique horse tack, bits and bridles, my series “Once Upon A Horse” incorporates a variety of these tools of communication between horse and rider.  This piece includes a handcrafted bit I found in west Texas.  The horse placed on the top is precariously balancing on the rings signifying the ultimate goal…perfect balance with horse and rider.

Available in multiple patinas.
