"Fear is a great motivator. It got me to face one of my biggest challenges: horses. But once I got beyond my fear of these magnificent animals, a whole new world opened up for me. Perhaps the most unique and powerful paintings I create are my depictions of horses.
The intemperate mind, the wild eyes, the warm heart and the tenderness of horses is what I try to capture in my work. My palette consists of bold, raw color contrasting against stark light to convey a sense of energy and power. I am trying to capture the essence and soul of every horse that I paint." - Dede Schuhmacher*
