Although I frequently use equine imagery in my work, my creations are not simply just about painting "pretty ponies." It is much deeper. Horses have always been my point of entry into the world, a way of framing, questioning, understanding and commemorating. My work examines the relationships between memory, family, identity, and loss. Drawing upon my equestrian past (and present) horse forms and fragments become the language through which these ideas are explored and articulated.
