About the Artist: Vickers is an artist and art educator from West Lafayette, Indiana. She is currently pursuing a Ph.D. in Art Education and is a full-time Senior Lecturer at Purdue. Heather Galloway Vickers’ love of horses and capturing them through drawing are obsessions that began in her youth. Recently returning to the equine subject matter as an adult, she thinks about them differently. She aims to convey that even powerful minds can be upended by circumstances over which they have no control.
