About the Artist: Kim McElroy

A lifelong horse lover, Kim McElroy portrays the inspiring emotional, spiritual, and dynamic presence of these magnificent creatures. At times she portrays horses as ethereal spirits, symbolically blended with the forces of nature, while her more realistic portraits capture the emotional impressions where beings inspire in those who admire them. Her intuitive understanding of the true nature of horses allows her to express the horse’s entire being rather than just a likeness. Through her incredible mastery of pastels, and her talent in writing about her artistic insights, Kim McElroy conveys the power and beauty of the horse’s form…yet more than that, she offers us a timeless glimpse of its soul.
