Artist’s Website: LauraChristieArt
Laura Christie’s art comes from her passion: to live in Rapport with horses. Ignited in childhood, that passion led her to a successful thirty year career as a professional horse trainer. From that career comes a lifelong study of equine form, movement and anatomy…and the intimate knowledge grown from having trained hundreds of equine souls in partnership. And therein lies Laura’s purpose in her art: Sharing the Love of Horses!! Laura also has certification in Equine Structural Integration, was an Art/Biology double major, and holds a BS in Biology. She is currently a full-time artist, exhibiting in art shows around the country, and has clients in the US, the UK, and Canada. Laura has resided in Montana for 38 years, and lives with her husband on their farm in South-Central Montana.
Artist’s Statement Regarding Horse of a Different Color
When Dunrovin Ranch contacted me about their Horse of A Different Color Event, I knew immediately what my concept would revolve around….Charlie Russell and Montana Native Americans! Growing up drawing & painting & riding as a kid, I idolized Russell and the history reflected in his work. Moving to Montana in 1979, I got to experience the legacy of Montana Native American tribes and that of Russell, more intensely. I believe art should ignite feelings, and tell a story. I hope to do that with my living Horse canvas concept! I’m honored to participate in Dunrovin’s fabulous Horse of A Different Color Event, bringing Art & Horse Lovers together, emphasizing the importance of horses in therapy and rehabilitation, and contributing to the worthy charities involved.
