A Signature Member of the American Academy of Equine Art (AAEA), sculptor Lynn Fraley’s equine creations express evocative personalities. Her deep respect for anatomy and love of movement is evident in each piece. Limited editions are available in bronze, resin or ceramic.
Vivid in my imagination from earliest days, Horse, is my visual vernacular.
Every personality that emerges, every gesture, every line of light in shadow, emanates from an inner world.
To give this idea of Horse presence I consult nature.
Anatomy, biomechanics and kinesiology. These are rules, tools really, I use to honor an inner spirit. Each sculpture is a meditation on a sense of rightness. That each part must be just so in order to fulfill the potential of the entire."
Also an educator, her private and group workshops have been offered through her own studio, Boise Art Museum and various locations throughout the United States. Students explore the science of anatomy while learning to capture the essence of realistic movement and expression when creating equine sculpture.
