Alecia Barry Underhill rose from the muck heap of a riding stable to attend the Rhode Island School of Design, where she traded in her pitchfork for a paintbrush and channeled her love for horses into a lifelong pursuit of capturing equines and other barnyard denizens on canvas. You may find her with her camera, traipsing around the county fairgrounds seeking the cow barn with the best light, stomping divots on the polo field, or wandering the backstretch at Saratoga. Any creature with wings, hooves or tails is fair game for subject matter, including her own two equines, her dog, Cheerio, Pixel, the grumpy tabby, and a rotating flock of hens.
She is known for her alphabet posters, “Horses from A to Z”, and “Alphadogs”, and is the illustrator of “For Horse Crazy Girls Only” by Christina Wilsdon. She has exhibited in horse-friendly venues across the country such as the International Museum of the Horse, the Wildlife Experience Museum in Denver, Churchill Downs, the Skyline Museum, and The Theodore Roosevelt Society. She has painted several sets for the Bradley Playhouse, and you may occasionally catch a glimpse of her onstage in the ensemble of a musical.
