Janet Ferraro, Santa Cruz Member Since February 2015 Artist Statement I have been passionate about art, animals and especially horses, since I was a young child. Drawing these beautiful creatures was a gentle release of imagination and creativity that nurtured my spirit. Like so many young girls, horses were truly magical to me. I drew them tirelessly and spent time with them whenever I could. There is something extraordinary about the beauty, power and presence of the horse. Being in the company of horses and all of God's creatures creates such internal peace for me.
Creating art for a living took on different forms in my life from fashion design, fabric print design and painting custom portraits for clients of the horses and other animals that they love. I am blessed and so happy to share this artistic journey with you. Thank you so much for taking the time to view my art today. I hope you feel the spirit and joy that I felt when creating them. Maybe someday I will create a painting just for you! Thank you! Janet Ferraro
