A favorite Christmas memory of this artist is standing on her tiptoes for a closer look at a frosting-laden cookie-house atop her grandmother’s dark wood table. Many years later, she would think how wonderful it would be to create her own Holiday treat – a Painted Pony made of gingerbread wearing candy cane, gum drops and sprinkles instead of a traditional saddle and bridle.
About the Trail of Painted Ponies:
Painted Ponies is a collection of figurines based on the life-sized public art project called The Trail of Painted Ponies which first appeared in Santa Fe, USA in 2001. Intended to promote cultural tourism, the project enchanted hundreds of thousands of people, produced dazzling original artwork, and raised almost a million dollars for the local community.
The Trail of Painted Ponies explores the inspirational power of the horse by giving artists the opportunity to paint and embellish elegantly designed horse sculptures, which are crafted into highly detailed, miniature resin and ceramic collectible figurines that honour the spirit and capture the power, beauty and magic of the original artworks. These miniature works of art are prized by collectors who appreciate artistry and fine craftsmanship.
All Painted Ponies begin as original designs submitted by established and emerging artists, which are transformed into finely detailed hand-painted resin or ceramic decal figurines. The diversity of imagery means there are Painted Ponies that will appeal to everyone. Each Painted Pony comes included with a story about the inspiration for the artwork.
