I love the contours of the equine form - I think it may be in my blood; I was born in Lexington, Kentucky. As a child I lived in front of a huge horse farm. I would sit in my back yard looking forlorn and bored until the owners would come invite me to hang out with the horses. After that I was hooked! I grew up doing small shows, riding bareback to the nearby lake, and even riding to work at, you guessed it, a stable. Horses saved me during those years, and I still love their smell, watching them move, and painting them. Even though I don't have horses right now, I still need to get my fix, only now, it's through art. I hope you enjoy my little painted celebrations of all things equestrian!

"Haflinger Portrait" Giclée
My giclées are printed on watercolor paper and look and feel much like a real watercolor painting. I can create any size you would like, so if you want something custom just contact me!
*Hand Painted Giclées*
Hand painted Giclées are printed on canvas, and then I hand paint them with museum quality acrylic paint so they become a truly original piece of artwork! The canvas is about 75% covered with acrylic paint.
If you select a hand painted option, it may take up to a month to receive the completed art.
*What is a Giclée?*
"Giclée" is a French term meaning "spraying of ink." This technique produces a quality print with a lush, velvety finish. Giclée prints are commonly found in museums, art galleries, and photographic galleries. Images are generated from high resolution digital scans and printed with archival quality inks onto various substrates including canvas, fine art, and photo-base paper. The giclée printing process provides better color accuracy than other means of reproduction and provides incredible detail.
Numerous examples of giclée prints can be found in New York City at the Metropolitan Museum, the Museum of Modern Art, and the Chelsea Galleries. Recent auctions of giclée prints have fetched $10,800 for Annie Leibovitz, $9,600 for Chuck Close, and $23,600 for Rachel Parker (just checking to see if you are reading!!!)
