Sande Elkins' Profile

About

Hi, my name is Sande Elkins and I wear many artistic hats. For over 25 years, I created whimsical folk art sculpture that I sold all over the world. I also did freelance design for the gift and housewares market. In my mid forties, I became a bit burnt out from the 24/7 grind and I started looking for a new medium that would inspire me. Then, six years ago, my husband gave me a beautiful, dapple gray mare for my birthday. The horse that I named Mouse has become my inspiration and muse and taken my art into an entirely new direction. Now most of my energy and time is spent creating equine art and photography. In the coming months, I will be adding paintings and drawings to my Gray Horse Designs shop. I'm also opening two additional shops. One features the folk art sculpture that I'm returning to with new enthusiasm after so many years away:

During the holidays, the shop sold out of all but one piece but I will be replenishing as the year goes on and that one, lonely Santa will soon be joined by witches and cats and other fun Halloween stuff and beautiful galloping horses with flying manes. Who knows where my imagination will take me this year but you're welcome to join me on the journey.

And, speaking of journey's, I'm venturing into an entirely new medium for me, jewelry. I'm very excited about this and I can't wait to open my new etsy shop which will go by the name, Moonhanger's Dream. I'll announce the grand opening here hopefully in the next few weeks!
