Welcome to the

udy Renee Pope has been customizing models longer than I've been in this hobby, which is over 20 years! She is one half of what I like to call the Dynamic Duo, the other half being Elizabeth Bouras. These two roommates have a marvelous arrangement--one does the resculpting, repositioning, and epoxy work, and the other does the painting. In most cases, Judy does all of the body work and then hands the pieces over to Elizabeth for painting. You'll find many of Judy's customized models, expertly painted, in Elizabeth's Gallery.

This Gallery is bursting at the seams with the vast talent of Judy Renee Pope. These pieces were all customized and finished by Judy, who loves painting with her "trademark" metallic mixtures of acrylics. Her horses are bright and vibrant and you'll see that she doesn't mind trying out wild ideas! Like Elizabeth, Judy has a passion for Arabians, and her creations shine on those pages, but it's obvious that Judy admires all breeds--there are stunning examples of a plethora of breeds and types throughout her Gallery, including some out-of-this-world fantasy horses you'll flip over! It's easy to see why Judy's horses are so popular!

Update, September 6, 2007: Judy Renee Pope will continue her activites in another realm. Thanks for the memories and beautiful work, Judy!
