I was recently invited to be represented with Cross Gate Gallery in Lexington, Kentucky. Horses, of course, come to mind. I envision jewel-toned jockey jerseys decorated with diamonds and stripes and pristine pastureland dotted with freshly painted fence posts. Though I have ridden only a handful of times, I have always admired the strength, speed and beauty of the horse. My lack of knowledge and poor visual memory of the physiology of the thoroughbred in many ways offers me freedom to create playful and narrative works.
