Lots of news and show acceptances!

Where do I start?  Besides apologizing for not updating in the past few months… Quicksilver has been accepted to the prestigious American Academy of Equine Art Fall Exhibition in KY.  This is always a “bucket list” show for me.  I’m so honored to be a juried member of this illustrious (no pun intended) group. “Patience”(…)

New Year, New Logo!

New Year, New Logo!

Designed from a photo I’d taken at HITS Saugerties last fall.  The wonderful flowing ribbon, the graceful line of the neck, the barest suggestion of the tack, the set of the ears, and the silhouette of the horse communicates in a glance what I look for and try to capture in an image.  There’s a(…)

Artist Statement

I use bold, vibrant color and elegant black and white to communicate my passion for art and the animal form.  The power, grace, strength and energy of horses speak very strongly to me, and I depict them frequently in my work. 

Utilizing a variety of different media, I try to create works of art that are engaging, gestural, energetic and accurate.
