Award-winning Florida artist, Mindy Z. Colton, originally from New York City, was classically trained in all the traditional arts. She pursued a career in Graphic Design & illustration while still finding time for her fine art. Mindy chose to leave behind her successful design career to follow her true passion as a full time fine artist. Her love of sculpture is where she has found her greatest artistic satisfaction and success. Involved with horses her entire life, she chose to combine her passion for both art and horses in her unique sculptural works. She has mastered a number of natural and manmade materials to create her very unique mixed media horses.
Mindy earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Washington University School of Fine Art in St. Louis, and an M.A. from the University of Central Florida. Her work has been featured in many publications, The Chronicle of the Horse, Horses in Art, Florida Sport Horse, Winter Park Magazine, Contemporary Sculptors, American Art Collector and more. Mindy lives on a small horse farm in rural East Orlando with her husband, and rescue dog Bonnie and a host of wild animals and birds where she has her studio.
