From an original pen & ink on illustration board by Susan Wickersham
Susan is very familar with this subject since for 20 years on her ranch Dark Star Arabians, she bred and raised Arabians including three stallions. This gave her ample opportunity to study their physical beauty and strength in a variety of settings and moods. You can feel the power of this young Arabian stallion as he rears up off the ground fiercly pawing the air with his hooves. His arched neck accentuates this long mane and high set tail sailing in the wind.
Susan is a founder and main artistic force of Alembic. She has drawn and painted since childhood. When not designing new models or customs with intricate inlay patterns, she is expressing herself in a variety of media and themes.
