How it all began
After having seen a wire artist crafting big, loopy armadillos out of wire on Reading Rainbow (a public television show) I decided to make a horse out of wire. I was 12 years old and everything came back to horses. Sitting on a hay bale in the barn aisle, under the watchful gaze of a wise Appaloosa/Thoroughbred mare “Holly”, I made the first Livewire out of some scrap baling wire. I don’t think that either Holly or I realized that this horse with spring-like legs would lead to all this! With the encouragement of family and friends, I started “Livewires” to pay for college some eight years later.
