EQUINE

INSPIRATION

   I grew up riding horses and working on horse farms. They have always inspired my lifestyle and art.

   I started weaving with horsehair as part of my senior thesis in college. As a fine art major and member of the Skidmore Equestrian team, my days were split between the barn the textile studio. I wanted to combine my passions together in some way. The idea came naturally when I decided to take bits of pulled mane out of the trash and bring it back to my loom. 

   After graduation I continued to explore the craft of weaving. At the same time I began working on a horse farm in North Salem, New York where I was introduced to natural horsemanship. I later worked as a wrangler in Greenough, Montana practicing vaquero style of riding.

 

   Gaining a horse's trust is extremely rewarding. Through clear communication and patience you can understand each other and work together as a team. This partnership is like no other feeling, it is therapeutic for your soul.
