Our Morgan gelding was used as the model for Ancient Passage. My goal was to idealize
the animal and create a powerful image. I am preoccupied with modeling horses and
consciously stylize my designs. My obsession with modeling horses continues to lay
a thorough foundation for my art, just as playing scales does for a musician. In my
opinion, horses and the human figure are the most difficult creatures to transform into
a visual expression - perhaps it's because they are both so beautiful.
