Sculpture - Carved and painted horses...
My sculpture is colorful, dramatic and guaranteed to get noticed. Horse lovers can appreciate the correct anatomy, accurate movement and expression of my "Ponies". Most designs (basic wood horse shape) are made in a series of 10. Each is painted with a different pattern and colors so each one is a one of a kind sculpture. Artist Statement
Originally from New Jersey (where the state animal is the horse) and educated at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY, Janet Bailey Burch has adopted Kentucky as her home state. For close to 30 years, she has worked in the horse industry as a trainer, coach, and judge. Art was a valued release from the busy and hardworking equestrian life. In 2000, after being excepted as a juried participant of The Kentucky Crafted Marketing Program, she began selling her "Punk Ponies" at art fairs and trade shows. Now using a balancing act between the horse world and the art world, she has developed a following of collectors from all walks of life who love horses and her unique use of color and pattern.
