Biography / CV of Kathleen Friedenberg

Kathleen Friedenberg began her professional career as a veterinary surgeon in England, and came to the United States, on a Thouron scholarship, studying human and equine orthopaedics at the University of Pennsylvania.

Following marriage, and study at a commercial art school, she spent several years doing medical and veterinary illustration, including illustrating three books.

Sculpting began at night school, but soon became a full-time occupation. Further study with Zenos and Evangelos Frudakis resulted in a more structured and classical approach, and her veterinary background gives her unexcelled understanding of animal anatomy and movement.

Horses are the favourites, in a wide range of human and animal subjects. She is actively involved with the American Academy of Equine Art, being a Vice-President and Director of Education, and conducting an annual workshop of equestrian sculpture, under their auspices, at The Kentucky Horse Park, since their teaching programs began in 1992. In 2003 she taught the first of the Academy`s workshops at the University of Pennsylvania`s School of Veterinary Medicine at New Bolton Center.

Winning the Academy`s "Award of Excellence" for three consecutive years, AND MORE, as judged by fellow equestrian artists, was a special achievement.
