When I can’t ride a horse ~ I am creating Art!  No housework getting done here!  Art is another great passion in my life.  There are great parallels between horses and art.  Both are creative outlets.  I love creating portraits that capture that special essence of the subject.  Whether it’s a touching portrait of a young lady, a mischievous dog, or a spunky little pony they are all special to me.

The images and slideshow below is a sampling of my work.  I am available for commissions.  If interested please contact me at cathy.zappe@gmail.com

I was honored to receive 2nd Place at the USDF Adult Art competion for

“Ponies at Hickstead”
