I was contacted by Mali Klein (writing as Gabriel J. Klein in partnership with her son, Gabriel Stroud) when she was in the process of writing her third book of the young adult series: ‘Four Significant Winter Nights’. She said she was ‘looking for an equine artist whose talents include the ability to interpret the combination of breed bloodlines as outlined in the series + the necessary ‘magic’ to manifest the narrative descriptions of Valkyrjan, the greatest of the Galdramerar, the legendary grey mares favoured by the Valkyrs’.


Mali described the literary character of Valkyrjan as ‘huge, the combination of her bulk and majestic beauty are staggering, even breathtaking when anyone first sees her. Every muscle is defined under a smooth and glowing, silver-white coat. She has the grace of a mare in the body of a battle stallion…’

As I read Mali’s evocative stories, images of Valkyrjan began to appear in the threshold of my dreams. I envisioned her appearing out of the darkness and taking form. Then I went about composing pastel to paper to depict a mythical horse who is as real as flesh and blood, a spirit born of legend and emerging onto the paper. It was an artistic challenge that stretched what I knew of my skills and intuition.


Mali’s Response: “Working with Kim was magical. We were immediately on the same wavelength visualizing the Galdramerar, combining her creativity with pastel and mine with words. The result is everything I hoped for and more, truly breathtaking. Wow!”

    PLEASE NOTE: International Print Shipments:

    ​Free Shipping is only offered on Domestic USA shipments and doesn't apply to Canadian and International Shipping. With the variety of products we offer, it is impossible to accurately predict Shipping charges to different countries. Shipping costs for prints are calculated AFTER checkout based on package weight and distance. Customers will receive an invoice to cover any additional costs. Please note that we are only charging the amount to ship, which exceeds what we are offering as free packaging and shipping. Tracking is also sometimes unreliable but our packages have always landed safely. ​Border fees, duties, and handling fees might apply.

    When ordering prints: I have my art custom-scanned with the highest resolution possible to capture every stroke and texture of the original pastel. For most of my prints, my publisher, American Moulding, offers a variety of options shown below. I also offer Custom Prints which are made locally and hand-signed and shipped from my studio.


    Paper Prints and Matted Prints are printed on substantial 180g Archival Matte paper. They are wrapped in clear protective packaging in a flat mailer.

    Regarding Matted Prints: The size of the matted print indicates the outside edge of the mat dimensions. An 11" x 14" matted print fits in a frame with an 11" x 14" opening. Depending upon the artwork dimensions, mats are approx 1 1/2" - 2" wide



    Premium Fine Art Prints are printed on luscious 310g Sunset Textured Watercolor paper. They are shipped rolled in a sturdy tube. This allows the larger size to ship economically and damage-free.

    Canvas Prints are finished with a mirror image of the art around the edge and mounted on 1.5” inch stretcher bars. They include a wire for hanging and are shipped in a sturdy cardboard crate

    Please Note:  Some of my artwork is different in ratio than standardized sizes. They work best with custom framing by your local frame shop. For more affordable framing, consider the Matted Prints which allow any size of art to become a standard-sized dimension to allow ease of selecting a store-bought frame. 

    Due to supply chain issues, our current turnaround times are as follows:

    Paper Prints: 1 to 2 weeks

    Matted Prints: 3 to 4 weeks

    I am honored to create this beautiful piece for you to frame behind glass and hang in a special place in your home. Each print is as much my art as the original, carrying the energetic blueprint of the art into your life.
