About the Artist

Imagine careening down the track on a half-ton of horseflesh doing 40 MPH. Think of the jockey balancing himself motionlessly on top of his mount with no safety net. Visualize the bright colors of the jockeys’ silks, the flare of the horses’ nostrils, the excitement of horseracing. Some would consider the world of thoroughbred horseracing as an art form and the riders who guide their mounts as artists.

I am a former jockey-turned artist and many of my fans thought many of my riding feats were works of art. Now my art takes a more traditional form. Instead of riding horses, I paint them. I also paint just about everything else from wildlife, to birds, to chickens.

As a jockey, I’ve experienced the banging of the starting gate doors closing. I felt the horse under me anticipating the ringing of the bell and leaving there like a scalded cat when the gates burst open. I’ve heard the noise of the horses’ hooves and their strained breathing, the jockeys hollering, and the wind blowing through the rigging of my helmet. I’ve felt the horse’s mane whipping across my face and the dirt clumps pelting me like a hailstorm. A few times I’ve even felt the sting of another jockey’ badly aimed whip. On top of all this, there is an adrenaline rush that just doesn’t stop. This is the unique perspective that I try to bring to my art. Many of my pieces either focus on the jockey or have a jockey’s point of view.
