Official Painted Ponies Artist Karlynn Keyes

Kevin grew up on a farm in Elk City, Oklahoma with a proud, pioneering history located along the historic Route 66.

Kevin was always artistically inclined, and his abilities were recognized by others as early as first grade. As Kevin got older he continued to "fiddle," making carvings out of antlers and wood.

Giddy Up Portraits
Official Painted Ponies Artist Jennifer MacNeill-Traylor

"Being a realist artist I strive to capture the true spirit and character of each subject I paint. The eyes are a very important factor when I do a painting. I work in many different mediums such as feathers, rock, leather, bone, as well as traditional canvas and acrylic based mediums, along with my beloved painted ponies. I also do commissioned work for clients. My art has been a life long journey and will be with me as long as I am able to paint, it inspires me and takes me to a place of peace and tranquility in the many hours I spend painting." - Lorna Matsuda
