Candace M. Liddy is an accomplished Equine/animal artist and horsewoman. Her childhood was spent with Grandparents and Great Grandparents who had horses and she spent her childhood learning all
she could about her favorite animals. Her art is an extension of this love, as the beauty of the horse and other animals in all their forms drives her to sculpt and paint these amazing creatures. She
has two grown children and lives on a hobby farm with her husband and their menagerie of cats, dogs, and horses, most of them going on the fourth generation of Liddy breeding.
Signature member of the Academy of Equine art since
