It all started when...
I fell in love with horses at the age of 7. I began to draw them constantly. During high school I was in the advanced placement art class where I studied Chinese calligraphy, a skill I would use again later on. I started Equine Spirit Art when I graduated high school and etched horse designs into wooden objects like peg racks, jewelry boxes, and toy chests.
In 2009 I was inspired by my aunt Evelyn King to create a horse design for a silver pendant. The lines could not touch because the design would be laser-cut out of the silver. Using my calligraphy drawing skills I created the Spirit Horse design and that inspired my current collection of designs. I love to explore different avenues of art, working with different mediums, textures, and always trying to think outside the box.
In 2014 I began to create Art on Horseback, an idea I had over two years ago. I ride Rovandio, my mother-in-law's Andalusian/Lipizzan gelding, by a large canvas, using dressage movements to help me land the right brushstrokes. Click here to visit the Art on Horseback webpage.
I hope you love my products and feel great knowing that you are supporting an artist, a horse lover, a local business, and the environment. I use organic and recycled clothing when they are available for my store. You can feel the difference and it helps take care of our planet.
