Official Painted Ponies Artist Jennifer MacNeill-Traylor

"My family is my greatest inspiration for everything I do. From a very young age, I was always involved in art. I started off with coloring books, and then progressed into pencil drawings. I learned shading techniques by looking at a simple arrangement of flowers in a vase. At the age of 10, I entered a coloring contest of a Macaw for a local newspaper and won first place. As I got older I expanded my skills with other mediums and styles. Exploring different types of paints, pastels, and even sculpture. Some of my favorite subjects include science, automotive, and animals. Animals in general play a big role in my life, both in art and personal. I actually own a mini-zoo of exotic reptiles, birds, and saltwater aquariums. Being an artist for The Trail of Painted Ponies is a great accomplishment for me because I have always dreamed of having a piece of my art work out there in the world for others to enjoy." - Courtney Moore

Official Painted Ponies Artist Jennifer MacNeill-Traylor

Lori grew up in Tucson, the daughter of a handyman and a kindergarten schoolteacher, but from the age of five she spent her summers with her great-aunt in Lincoln. There, to keep her occupied, she was given the job of touching up the antiques that needed to be repainted. For diversion, Lori would sometimes let her imagination take over and paint designs and scenes on old milk cans and coal scuttles. One day a customer purchased one and, according to Lori, "That gave me my start in the art world." To learn more about Lori Musil, Click Here.
