Nancy Strowger was perhaps the most talented repainter of the 1970's and early '80s and her horses were highly sought after and are still prized today by those who know what they are. The vast majority are straight repaints on Breyers tho she also painted many H-Rs and retouched some Breyers. They are especially noteworthy for their beautiful eyes and facial detail. She influenced many later artists including Julie Froelich and Tom Bainbridge and I taught myself how to paint by looking at her work. For unknown reasons she later started working in slightly different styles under the psuedonyms "Jason Ross", "Adrian King", "Sarah King", "Sarah Ross" and others and disappeared in the early '80s. In early 2000 she popped up unannounced at one live show in the Phoenix area and sold a few NEW models, among them the new Breyer Stablemate Paso mare below.
She is one of my all time favorite repainters and I am always interested in purchasing any of her works. If you have any to sell or know somebody who does please write me at email@example.com
