View Full Version : Kathleen Kirch Update

I just thought I'd drop a note here to update y'all on what's up with me, since I know some people have had a difficult time reaching me over the past few months.

In the past year or so, I've gotten divorced and moved house, in addition to taking a position as assistant to a real-horse clinician who does horsemanship clinics all over the world. I also now have three real horses of my own to keep in work.

I am still painting, whenever I have time. I am accepting a couple of custom orders per month, and turning those around in four to six weeks, as a rule. I am also wading through a large collection of unpainted bodies that I have built up over time, and I'm offering them for sale first to my Yahoo Group, then on my website and then on eBay or MXC.

I have no plans to leave the model horse hobby any time soon. My job painting is a perfect balance to my work with real horses and the travel that involves. I can always pick up a project where I left off.

Due to my divorce, I've also chosen to change my last name, so from now on, my horses will be painted by Kathleen Lindley.

Here is my new contact information:


Kathleen Lindley
Gray Horse Studio
P.O. Box 2972
Estes Park, CO 80517

Please do feel free to pass this information along within the hobby as you may see fit.

Many thanks,

Hi Kathleen, great to see that you are now on the east side of the Divide! You should stop in to see me in Boulder some time.

Way to go Kathleen! Your job sounds awesome. Post photos of your real horses in Real Equine sometime. We'd love to see pictures!
Good luck with your career, with your painting, and with your life!
