about racehorse designs.
Growing up on a Standardbred breeding farm in Michigan, my love for horses started at a very early age. I am now a practicing equine veterinarian based in Lexington, Kentucky and have always carried with me that same love and appreciation for horses that I felt when I was a young girl.
I am inspired by the history of thoroughbred racing and it is my love and admiration for these noble athletes that you will see in my work. I also enjoy combining both the realistic and abstract forms in the pieces I create. Each piece is hand painted with acrylics and is one-of-a-kind.
As for my artistic medium, I work with predominantly Kentucky-sourced wood to create my pieces. I particularly enjoy working with beautiful and unique Sycamore hardwood but also use many other woods including American Oak, Birch, Poplar, Cedar, Maple and Hackberry. I finish most of my pieces with epoxy resin to give a shine and depth to each piece of artwork.
Feel free to contact us for additional information concerning any piece on this site.
We can also create a custom piece based upon a racehorse of your choosing.
