I was born and raised in a small town in rural Massachusetts. My artistic sensibilities were established at an early age. When I was 3, my parents bought a country home that was surrounded by a 300 acre dairy farm. I spent my young years exploring the ponds, forest, and meadows that surrounded my parent’s home. When I was older, my two sisters and I saved our money and with the help of our parents, we bought horses. I then had wonderful times riding my Banner to explore the old logging roads around the Berkshire mountains.

My husband and I bought a property in Santa Cruz, many years later, that had the potential to pasture horses. With the birth of our daughter and my journey into art, there was not time for care of these creatures. Fortunately, the neighboring property housed many beautiful horses.

    “On the back roads of New England one can find calming pastoral scenes.  One autumn day I spotted this scene, which included white horses with a red barn and a background of trees enflamed by Jack Frost. It inspired first a watercolor (White Horses) and later this larger oil painting. The early fall, especially October, is the best time to visit, when the color is extraordinary as the sugar maples, elms, and oaks prepare for winter.” – mh
