"Drawing and painting is a never ending passion for me. I love to paint flowers, birds, dogs, and wildlife. However, the one subject that I am always drawn to is the horse. First I begin with the eye because that's what makes the painting come to life. If I'm lucky enough to get that right, then I begin the journey. For me, capturing on paper the mystical elegance and lavish liberty of these gorgeous creatures is a breathtaking adventure into the unknown!
