“Love at first site…of a horse”

My love for horses one might say  was “Love at first site”.My first encounter with horses was when my parents took me to a local stable for pony rides. I was probably about 5  yrs. old.One look was all it took.I was so enamored. I loved being up in the saddle the first time.I felt on top of the world and this gentle, beautiful creature, the horse, carried me along.After that I seemed to seek out horses in just about every thing: coloring books, drawing books (which I studied and drew my own horses on paper), toys/Breyer horses.Though I haven’t yet owned my own horse, it’s continued on throughout my life.

Oh, what better way to learn than to learn through horses… books of horses.

My mom encouraged me to read and what books would I read, whether from the public library or our home library…you got it “about Horses”.One of my favorites is still “Little Black, A Pony” by Walter Farley.I’ve read others too.

Man ’o War, SeaBiscuit, The Black Stallion. The list goes on and on.
How enriching for me it was to read and learn about horses.What better way to expand my knowledge than to immerse myself in books and learning…and include horses in that journey.

Well, Just because of those years, I’ve set a side a couple of sections for those horse crazy kids.

I also have added a special page to add  some creative fun: my newest product, “Horse Fun Pages”.

So browse around and find that perfect fit for you and your child.

And Cheers to continued learning and fun.




Feature Art/product


“Frogs” evolved through a brainstorming session. I was trying to come up with a story for which the main character was a frog. My little cousin gave me the idea when she was visiting once.

We were sitting on the living room rug and I was asking her what she wanted me to draw. She said “Dr. Frog”. I quizedly said, “Dr. Frog”? She said “yes” and laughed because I seemed stumped. I drew her what I thought a Dr. Frog would look like. She loved it. My Uncle, when I told him about  it, could only guess she came up with it through her fascination with the froggy items at my mom’s house and the many doctors she had to see because she had some medical problems as well as mental problems. She is physically/mentally challenged and to have her come up with such an abstract idea seemed more wonderful than ever. I was inspired by this and wanted to illustrate such a story. I still haven’t come up with a story, but I came up with “Frogs” image.

“Frogs” are avaliable in Card sets, SendOutCards cover art, and Stickers.
