Full Artist Bio

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 was actively involved with the American Academy of Equine Art, having been Vice-President and Director of Education. She also conducted an annual workshop of equestrian sculpture, under their auspices for over twenty years, from 1992, at the Kentucky Horse Park, and in several other states.  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.
In 2002 and 2003, she also taught classes, in sculpture of the horse, at the Scottsdale Artist’s School in Arizona, and in 2016 and 2017, at Brookgreen Gardens, S. Carolina.
Kathleen is  a member of various other art groups, including the Society of Animal Artists and the National Sculpture Society, winning numerous awards, including Medal of Honor at both Catharine Lorillard Wolfe Art Club and the American Artists Professional League, in New York.
Her work has appeared on the cover of The Chronicle of the Horse over twenty times, and she was featured in “Equine Images” magazine in the Fall 1989 issue, “Spur” magazine in July/August 1996, Kentucky Horse Park’s magazine, “Discover Horses”, Fall/Winter, 2003, “Hunt” magazine in 2004 and “Horses in Art” magazine, Summer 2008, as well as various other publications.  She was selected to appear in Daphne S. Landis’ beautiful book, “Speaking for Themselves – The Artists of Southeastern Pennsylvania.”
Kathleen is particularly known for the accuracy and vitality in her work.  “If it isn’t alive, I’ve failed!”

The connection between horse and man/woman has been forever profound and magical. Kathy captures this beautifully with anatomical detail acquired when becoming a Veterinary Surgeon in London years ago before the love of sculpting claimed her.
