Lisa Salamandick

I was deeply saddened to hear the news of Lisa Salamandick's passing earlier this week. I didn't know Lisa, but I did exchange email with her a few times. Several years ago she contacted me about trading a costume for tack. I was interested but too busy to commit. Later, I had time in my schedule but she did not. I always figured we'd work it out eventually. Sadly, that was not to be the case.
Still, I did manage to add a small piece of her work to my tack collection earlier this year. My friend Regan was trying to sell this lovely halter and asked me if I could help with the pictures. I took the halter home with me, put it on my Aashiq resin and that's where it's been ever since. It's a beautiful halter and I'm proud to own.

Here is a link to Darlene Dewar's remembrance of Lisa on MH$P: http://www.modelhorsesalespages.com/sales/view_details.asp?id=748273.

  1. I also was very saddened to hear of Lisa's death. I didn't know her well but I believe she was the buyer of a horse I sold a few years ago and we exchanged some very pleasant emails.

  2. We will miss her alot! The Pink moose live show was awesome, and we all had fun, even Lisa.

    It is a very sad day indeed.

  3. That is so sad to see a great artist go by the means of a horrid way(cancer). I have ALWAYS admired Lisa's work but was never able to obtain it. Yes I did see some of it live at a live show and all I can say is UGH! Beautiful work. Her work inspired me to try my hand at making Arab Presentation sets that can be seen on my page. She will be greatly missed.
