As long as I can remember I’ve loved two things: horses and art. I started drawing before I could talk and once I discovered horses around the age of five, they became my favorite subject. Growing up with a Grandfather and a Mother who are also artists gave me the opportunity to pursue my artistic passion from a very young age. At the same time, I was also taking riding lessons and developing a huge passion for horses. I graduated from the University of Tulsa with a B.F.A., emphasizing Graphic Design. While in college, I had the wonderful opportunity to study abroad and spend a semester painting the south of France! This gave me a fresh look at painting and art in general and feel that I have been able to incorporate this into my design even today.
See Horse Design started out as just a name for my freelance design company that I started during my senior year of college. I wanted to come up with a name that was creative and something that defined me as an artist and as a person. It wasn’t until recently that I discovered what a happy coincidence the name actually was! After years of freelance work in various venues and mediums, I have decided to focus primarily on Equestrian Identity – something that I feel is incredibly important in this industry and something that has also fallen a bit behind in terms of innovation and creativity (though it’s getting much better!). My focus is to blend the traditional feel of the sport with a more modern take on marketing and identity. I specialize in logos and print design, but have experience in web design, corporate branding and marketing. I love experimenting with color, layout and thoroughly enjoy a good typeface!
