Leah Peretz has been a horse enthusiast practically since birth. From begging for riding lessons to asking for model horses on every birthday, she could never have enough. As she got older, she gained an interest in the arts, especially when it came to depicting the beauty of the horse. Through years of studying horse anatomy, sketching, painting, and more recently exploring sculpture, she hopes to share her passion and art in her favorite hobby by capturing the essence of the equine in her pieces

The rapport Candace has with horses enables her to bring a special insight into her pieces. "I want people who love art to see my work as sculptures that reflect composition, movement, complexity and emotion. But just as important, they are expressions of my love for the medium I choose to use and the animals I portray".

Candace feels very honored to now be a full member of the American Academy of Equine Art. After more than 30 years of doing Equine Art it is gratifying to be included into this elite organization in such a capacity. She hopes that her work will continue to reflect on the AAEA and her participation in the group will further our goals to represent the horse in all its beauty.

I’ve always been artistic and have been drawing, painting, and crafting with my sister ever since we were little. I’ve loved horses for as long as I can remember, so combining the two was only natural! Currently I customize models using a variety of mediums, including pastels, acrylics, and etching. Here and there I do some minor resculpting, and I’ve done a few original sculptures as well.

Some of my other interests include swimming, writing, horseback riding, photography, electric cars, traveling, and fish keeping. I’m also a huge dog lover – especially when it comes to Chihuahuas!

Horses have always been my life. I was done in the first time I saw a carousel horse at the age of 2. I owned my first horse a Standardbred named I.C. Stars in 1982 and many others have blessed my life since then. I have done sorting, team penning, barrels, halter, reining and was a clinic junkie for 10 years.

I’ve been drawing horses as long as I can remember, and started customizing models in 2006, most of which never left my possession. In 2014 I did my first drastic custom, a zombie, made from the Breyer Family Arabian Stallion and the Running Arabian Stallion, though by the time I was done with it, maybe half of it was plastic. He gained a lot of attention and sold well, and has gone on to win multiple champion ribbons, even placing in the top three in his division at Breyerfest, and I knew at that point that I had found my specialty. In 2016 I released my first resin, a zombie pony-type by the name of Lazarus. Only 11 were made before the mold broke, but even today he still remains popular. I do still customize models, but my passion lies within sculpting, and creating a horse from scratch and having the freedom to do whatever I want with it, is truly liberating. While my focus and specialty may be in zombies, I do have plans in the future to release some “normal” horses, as well. In the end, it’s the art of sculpting that I love to do!

Jasmin has been in the hobby since 2007, although she started collecting model horses in her early childhood. Animals and especially horses always fascinated her, and after drawing them for years, she started capturing the souls of horses in sculptures. Her patience in observing every movement of the horse as a child has led her to create stunningly detailed sculptures by now. 

She has made several commissioned cust and paint jobs over the years, many of those won first prizes in live shows all over the world. Besides showing the beauty of nature, Jasmin wants to create a peace of art in every sculpture she makes. 

Jasmin has already turned her talent into her job. After having studied art and graphic design in Munich, she worked as a freelance designer and illustrator for many years, and is now creative director in a popular e-commerce StartUp. Her dream is to create model horses for a living.

I grew up with horses and many, many other animals – so my fascination for (model) horses isn’t very surprising.

Over the last years sculpting and painting model horses meant a compensation to my everyday life, especially during the semester when I weren’t able to be at home and spending time with our animals or my family. I’m studying veterinary medicine in Munich (Germany) and will probably finish the study in March`18.

Meanwhile I’m collecting, sculpting and painting model horses for more than 10 years. And I never stopped to try to improve myself with every piece.

JP has published over 100 articles on the history, training and the philosophy of horsemanship and dressage. He is currently preparing a practical guide to french dressage doctrine and another book that is a unique contribution to the training process in 3 different languages.

Jean-Philippe Giacomini is an international level rider, trainer and coach. He and his wife Shelly own and operate Baroque Farms Usa in Kentucky a short distance from the World Famous Kentucky Horse Park. JP travels internationally offering clinics and sharing his knowledge.

Few horseman today have had the opportunity to be an eye witness and train under the tutelage of the late and great Dressage Masters of all time. JP studied with and experienced this first hand and is now considered to be one of the few remaining true Masters of training Piaffe and Passage. 

It is literally a privilege to speak with JP and an honor to see him work. I learned more about riding by simply hearing him share over a lunch conversation than in all of my many years of pursuing the art of dressage. There is so much value in understanding the History of dressage and grasping the absolutes within the fundamentals. JP is a complete package... a true Master and a fascinating man.

Meet I.C.E., an original sculpture that I’ve been working on since 2016! Yes, perhaps a silly little name for an Akhal Teke filly but here’s the story behind it: I.C.E. stands for “I Can’t Even”, a quote which was said quite often by myself and another hobbyist during a sculpture workshop we were participating in. It pretty much summed up the frustrations we were having on our sculpts throughout the process and it just sort of stuck with the piece ...ergo, the name I.C.E. :)

Anyway, this cutie is to be released in resin very soon! She would be considered (large) traditional scale.
The foal measures approximately 6.5” Long x 6” High x 1 3/8” Wide.
The base measures approximately: 5” Long x 3/4” High x 2” Wide.

My name is Oksana Kuks and I am from Novosibirsk, Russia. 
I’ve been addicted to horses since I was a child. In my works be it an original sculpture or a plastic custom I try to share my love and admiration for these animals and make them not only anatomically correct, but bring life and soul into each piece. 
I have released original works in micro mini and stablemate scales and now have some plans on several other sized sculptures. However, minis seem to be my favorites, despite all the challenges they bring. I try to improve with every newest piece.
