ABOUT

Kerry Millikin, a world renown equestrinenne and Olympic Medalist, has channeled her lifelong study of the form and function of animals and athletes into sculptures of intensity and emotion. Starting to ride at the age of eight in her back yard with her first pony, Kismet, Kerry rose to the level of international success as a member of the United States Equestrian Three-Day Eventing Team. Winning medals at the World Championships, Pan American Games, Badminton and Rolex, Kerry's career culminated in her joining the elite fraternity of a winner of an individual Olympic medal as a member of the United States Olympic Team.

Kerry perceived her years of competitive riding as an art form, always trying to show the elegance and grace of the equine athletes she was riding. Kerry selected each of her horses as youngsters and developed and trained them herself, molding them with her exquisite riding into a perfect combination of horse and rider; form and function. Much of the success is a result of years spent studying the conformation and movement of horses and dogs. Kerry also attributes the hours spent grooming her horses, running her hands up and down every part of their body, applying that knowledge intuitively to the three dimensional art form for bringing her sculpture to life.

While riding competitively, Kerry completed a B.S. in Nursing, Magna cum Laude, studying the anatomy and physiology of the human form and completed courses in drawing and sculpture. All these life experiences have brought a sense of beauty and elegance to her sculptures.

Kerry resides in South Egremont, Massachusetts, where she sculpts and continues to train horses and riders in the sport of Eventing. Her art has been showcased at the Beresford Gallery in Unionville, Pennsylvania and the Crossgate Gallery in Lexington, Kentucky.
