Jan Walker’s paintings celebrate the beauty and freedom of the wild horses who roam the Western states. As an artist, she is deeply inspired by their strength, and the bonds that they form with different generations of their herd. As she writes of their strong connection to the land, “They are as equally of the wild as they are the wild itself.” The current plight of wild horses is tied to ongoing threats from the cattle industry, who lobby efforts by the federal government to cull and confine the herds. A portion of the sales from her paintings will be donated to organizations that promote the humane treatment of wild horses.
