I have named my studio after the Green Horse Lamp, which is an actual lamp featuring a green ceramic horse jumping over a barricade. This lamp has been in our family since the 1950's and has finally come to me. When I look at it, it reminds me to DREAM. I strive to exhibit creative imagination like the artist who produced this delightful object so long ago.
This past summer I combined the image of a horse, often green, with my natural inclination towards patterning. Using shapes within shapes, I dreamt up a magical network of hills and clouds and pathways - a brightly colored landscape suggesting mandalas and a dream world.
The result was my " HORSE DESIGN INSPIRATIONS" Series. These drawings are done with colored markers on paper that is 12' x 12' square. Because they are all the same dimensions, they would work well as a pair or as a group. They come unframed. The originals are available here on this website, as well as the digital images.
