Cathy Krieger grew up in Kansas riding horses and dreaming of the west.  To pursue her dream, she attended the University of Kentucky and earned a degree in horsemanship, then headed west where she found work at Lasma Arabians in Scottsdale, AZ, one of the premier Arabian horse ranches.

A self-taught artist, she began to sculpt horses, creating many bronzes for clients with champion Arabian horses while also showing her work in Scottsdale.  She was featured in Scottsdale Arabian Review magazine (now defunct, under the name of Cathy Agrella).

Painting eventually became Cathy’s passion, and she studied at the Scottsdale Artists’ School as well as took workshops painting horses from life with Bill Anton.  While at Yavapai College, she was asked to teach painting and printmaking, which she did as an adjunct for 15 years, teaching at night and painting during the day.  She has spent much time outdoors learning to paint “en plein air” and participating in plein air events in the Southwest.  Her traditional landscape paintings are coupled with colorful Southwest subject matter.  All of this can be found in Kriegers on Whiskey Row in Prescott, AZ, a gallery featuring the work of Cathy and her husband Heath Krieger.  Cathy has lived in Prescott, AZ, since 1971, where her studio overlooks the Granite Mountain Wilderness and life is good!

The richness and beauty of life is there for each of us to discover and interpret for ourselves.  My wish is to express and share that belief through my art.
