This feels weird (but in a good way).


I knew it was coming but I wasn't sure exactly how I would feel when it happened. When I signed the contract to have my Pegasus design put on a Trail of the Painted Ponies figurine, I knew I would be excited but today my ponies finally arrived and excited would be an understatement. I feel giddy, a bit nervous, butterflies are going mad in my stomach! When I left a "real job" 10 years and 6 months ago to pursue art, I never thought I would get to this place. Let's just say I count my lucky stars every day and am very thankful to all the great customers and friends I have made along the way.
It's has been a fantastic journey so far... onward and upward!


Original design for Celestial was on a running pony form.



TOPP designers translate the art to a rearing form.


So exciting to see my name printed on the bottom of this figurine.

Oh that is an awesome horse! First Painted Pony I've seen in that position too. Of course, I've been afraid to look and subject myself to the temptation. Love the colors too.
