Welcome! Buggs the horse and I have been together for 8 years and painting for over four years. Buggs is an incredibly smart, energetic, and willing horse who has a talent for making life "interesting" when he's bored. He has always been handy with his mouth and it didn't take me long to teach him to hold a brush in his mouth. Four years later he and I have created over 50 paintings together.

Being able to donate money or items for auction to horse charities are a big reason for doing what I'm doing. I also hope to broaden people's perception of what horses are capable of and that they have value beyond what we have traditionally used horses for. They are wonderfully intelligent, sensitive, intuitive, and sometimes creative beings who share our planet.

The Wisconsin horse rescue organization I donate to is Amazing Grace Horse Rescue and Sanctuary in Elkhart Lake, WI
