About

Blue Horse Design started off on the kitchen table with a sketch pad, pencil, pen or whatever else was handy at the time. Many a utility bill has been mailed with pretty, or not so pretty, renditions of abstract horses bordering the amount due. Always practicing and always abstract. I started with abstract shapes, bright colors and images that were slightly unusual. While I still love the slightly unusual, I have ventured into browns and more subtle colors. I also love working with fiber and photography.

At around the same time I was trying to think of a way to somehow help horses that were in need - it was all pretty vague back then but the idea began to progress and gradually Blue Horse Design began to take shape. I had finally found a way to combine my equine doodles with helping horses. I am now able to contribute to horse rescue on a small but consistent basis and am proud to donate sometimes up…

At around the same time I was trying to think of a way to somehow help horses that were in need - it was all pretty vague back then but the idea began to progress and gradually Blue Horse Design began to take shape. I had finally found a way to combine my equine doodles with helping horses. I am now able to contribute to horse rescue on a small but consistent basis and am proud to donate sometimes up to 100% of each purchase to horse rescue. It may seem like pennies, (and sometimes it is!) but it all adds up. In the meantime, I am learning about horses, rescues, laws, attitudes, relationships, and how even the smallest acts can be a big step in the direction of positive change.

I am enjoying the markets, events and fundraisers that I have been participating in during the past five years, and meeting the horses and people has been a great experience. So, with your help, I will continue to contribute to the horses - after all that’s what its all about.

UPDATE: In 2012 Blue Horse Rescue was formed. We are proud to be a 501(c)3 and have taken in our first horses - very exciting times. Blue Horse Design plays a large part in helping the horses at our rescue and a large percentage of our proceeds go to Blue Horse Rescue.
