I am an equestrian artist with roots in Frankenmuth, Michigan, and a heart deeply connected to the beautiful landscapes of Northern California. I’ve journeyed between these very different settings. But I have always found solace in the company of animals and the canvas where my artistic journey began.

My love affair with art began during my childhood. I spent it in the charming backdrop of my grandma’s backyard The constant presence of horses sparked a passion that would shape my life. Surrounded by this unique piece of nature and animals in the countryside, creativity and vision naturally became integral parts of who I am today.

While largely self-taught, my artistic evolution has been shaped by collaborations with fellow artists. I have a seemingly endless desire for the pursuit of experimentation with various mediums. It was during this exploration that I unexpectedly discovered the digital realm. It is a space where I can seamlessly translate my traditional techniques into new, limitless styles.

Armed with a digital pen and tablet, I embraced this modern medium. I honed my skills to design brushes, canvases, and color palettes uniquely tailored to my vision. Stroke by stroke, I breathe life into my art. I ensure that each piece resonates with the same authenticity as my traditional works. The result? Museum-quality canvases, adorned with inks designed to stand the test of time, lasting well over a century.

My affinity for horses naturally led me to build a diverse portfolio centered around these magnificent creatures. What started as a personal exploration evolved into a profession as people began commissioning my work. Drawing inspiration from cherished photographs, I use my distinctive style to immortalize memories of beloved horses, pets, and humans.

In my artistic expression, I revel in the use of vibrant and bold colors that leap off the canvas, defining my unique style. What jumps out through these colors is my deep connection to the subjects and the joy I find in the creative process.

Now, in my Michigan studio, I continue my artistic journey. The barn is not just a place of inspiration; it is a sanctuary where I find harmony with my horse and draw inspiration from the natural beauty that surrounds me.

Each creation is a testament to the enduring connection between art, nature, and the soul. This connection has been the guiding force behind my journey as an equestrian artist.
