Artist Laurie Snow Hein Aims To Help Wild Horses

Artist Laurie Snow Hein, a member of the Wellington Art Society, recently submitted three of her horse paintings to the Wellington Community Center gallery to be on display until April.

Her collection of wild horse paintings is Hein’s way of helping preserve these truly amazing animals in their natural, protected environments.

In 2010, Hein spent a week in North Dakota with her daughter to visit the state parks and a horse sanctuary to see these magnificent animals for herself.

Fascinated by these wild horse herds, she began capturing their magnificent, unspoiled beauty in a series of paintings.

Half of all proceeds from her horse painting sales will go to a wild horse preserve of her or the purchaser’s choice.
