As long as I can remember I was painting, drawing, and sculpting horses. I got my first Breyer when I was seven and eagerly began my collection. Soon I was repainting and repositioning my Breyers and attending Breyerfest so I could buy even more horses to practice on. I did my first original sculpture when I was fourteen and cast it myself several years later for a high school project. Meanwhile, I sculpted Magellan, a portrait of my real horse who would be my first resin casting. It was so incredible to see my own sculpture in hard white resin for the first time!
I took time off from sculpting after high school in order to pursue some of my other interests such as rock climbing, mountaineering, and traveling for a year in Australia, New Zealand, and Southeast Asia. In Australia, I worked exercising racehorses, polo horses, and training young horses.
