The Painted Pony

Debbie Grayson Lincoln, Laurie Pace, Diane Whitehead and Mary Jo Zorad have as many similarities as they do differences. Their artwork demonstrates a common commitment to a high standard of workmanship. To speak with any one of the four women reveals a commonality in what inspires them and how they choose to live their lives, with integrity and a commitment to doing their work for a higher cause.

“Life is a continual unfolding of exploration and adventure. One summer was spent driving through the west with camera and paints, wanting to reacquaint myself with America’s majesty, looking for some great, new artwork.”

Sonya Spaziani

Sonya believes the Soul of the old west still lives as evidenced on working ranches, and felt through quiet shivers when in old ghost towns where dust, wind whispers, and tumbleweeds are the only inhabitants. Through her art she attempts to capture the inner essence of what once was, though now just a whisper on the wind.
