The Mustang and Wild Horse have long been a passion of mine, as they are part of our history and heritage as Americans. All of our wild places and wild things are under current threat and our wild horses are among the few that are feeling the most extreme pressure, fighting for their very existence. The populations within these herds should be maintained in such a way that they are protected for many more generations to enjoy without impacting other wildlife or causing a hardship to ranchers. I have been committed to facilitating awareness of the plight of these horses through my art. I make donations of art and prints to fundraising efforts, offering items for auction and raffle. I promote the cause of the mustang by submitting my equine subject matter to national art competitions, in an effort to increase awareness, appreciation and friends for the American Wild Horse.
