As a child, she drew daily, whether it was crayons, paints or pencils. When she was a young adult, she moved to rural Colorado, where the mountains and western way of life was her daily muse. She has now moved to the plains of Wyoming, viewing the Big Horn mountains for a change of scenery and finding new inspirations for her art in the years to come.
TFS: Who is your favorite artist?
KT: It’s really hard to pick just one! I love all kinds of art and have the good fortune to know many wonderful artists, but if I had to narrow it down to an equine artist, I’d have to say Andre Pater. He mainly does sporting and racing art and accomplishes textures and light with pastels that are downright inspirational.
TFS: If you weren’t an artist, what would you be doing now?
KT: I like to think that I’d still be in a creative field. Doing some kind of design work, perhaps fabric/wallpaper design or graphic design. I am having a lot of fun doing some of my own graphic design work right now and wish I would’ve learned that earlier.
