“If you have come to help me, you’re wasting your time, but if you have come because your liberation is bound with mine, then let us work together.” — Lilla Watson

When we are exposed to our limitations, we have the choice to dig deeper. After rescuing a traumatized, slaughter-bound horse, this idea took on a whole new meaning for me. On the path to developing a trusting partnership with this mare, I realized many of her struggles mirrored my own.

This collection of paintings enters a psychological landscape in which I explore how people can transcend mental constructs and find healing through the guidance of horses. “With Silence Comes The Sight” follows a character as she connects with her darkest aspects in order to fully embrace her light. Each piece is designed to bring awareness to the power of our presence and how both the conscious and subconscious, the energetic and non-verbal, can speak louder than our words.

In culmination, this show invites us to consider what horses have to teach us about being fully human.
