Promoting equine excellence within the Headwaters Region and the Pan American Games is my primary inspiration, as well as genuine honor. As an abstract artist, I always stay true to my heart. I fill my art with emotive expression, make it fun, and give it all I have!
At first glance Missy is self-assured. She is bold and strong; thunderous perhaps. As she draws you in, she reveals that she is more complex and intricate in nature than first thought, and she divulges her horse-loving prose as tiny treasures offered to those who come near enough to know more.
Visually, Missy‘s rich colours are inspired by, and embody, those found in our equine beauties. And, with artistic freedom, gold, silver and bronze are used as a refined nod to the thrilling 2015 Pan Am Games! Gold reigns on Missy because she is a straight-up winning horse!!
