Artist Pulled Handmade Prints of Horses

Horses have been an active part of my imagination since I was about 10 years old and rode my first Smoketree Ranch horse at the Moonridge Stables in Big Bear Lake, California. As an adult I even owned horses for about 6 or 7 years, taking dressage lessons and going trail riding with friends.  Though I've dipped in and out of riding throughout my life, horses are always part of my imagery.

This year I've been collaborating with different artists. The result of those collaborations is now emerging. My friend Tolley Marney, a sculptor in Palm Springs (and a cowboy), creates beautiful sculptures of horses using recycled steel. Working from his images I created a series of original works on paper at A-6 (the printmaking studio I joined last year).
