People say artists are born, and Chris's story supports that theory. From her earliest years, she was fascinated by her surroundings, the colors and shapes and textures she found in nature. When she was old enough to hold a crayon, she began translating what she saw into images that delighted and amazed the people who saw them. She has a very painterly style that is bold and powerful in color and movement. She has genius creating depth and vibrancy in much the style of Van Gogh.
Chris has always loved horses, and was apprenticed by Candy, the working ranch horse, on her Grandfather's farm. She did Pony Club camp and rode with the local riding club. Practicing barback, Western and English styles, her Welsh-Thoroughbred cross. He was her muse/instructor and then when she grew up... She didn't have time or a place for a horse. She was working and raising her children.
Her Mother introduced her to Icelandics, who was inspired by Bokur, the only horse that was on the ground every day for the Great American Horse Race, never sick or lame. Now Chris lives with her husband, two Icelandic's, two cats, a dog, eight old chickens in the beautiful high desert and artistic culture of New Mexico.
In November, she had her first solo art show in Sante Fe, I (Julia) was lucky enough to attend.
Through color, texture and form, she stylistically interprets the world she experiences and then shares that insight. A true artist, she brings inspiration and appreciation to our community.
Lifelong passionate student of art, Chris Pennington has a wealth of experience in portaiture, landscape art, and commercial design. She says nature is her muse. Formally educated in classical fine arts with a BFA in graphic design to informal study through travel, experimentation, and collaboration.
She creates graphic designs for their T-shirt shop that has blessed many horse events and clinic witeh unique equine art.
