Jennifer Sauer, Winter Park, FL Member Since April 2013 Artist Statement After spending many years as a commercial artist in film and themed entertainment, I decided to take off from work to spend more time with my four-year-old daughter and focus on painting. I found myself to be inspired by our rescued greyhound Cody. He was pure elegance, beautiful from every angle, and, a pleasure to draw. Hanging around Cody showed me how much dogs speak with their body language. Being partial to greyhounds, I’m drawn to the similar beauty in horses. These two elegant animals, all muscle and bone, are capable of awesome power - equally beautiful at rest as in motion. By working in one or two bold colors and simple line work, I strive to capture the subject’s easy yet powerful grace. I hope you enjoy viewing them as much as I enjoyed creating them!
