A bucking bronco rears up, his rider unfazed. A bright blue sky and minimal landscape detail accentuate the energy of the scene. Alana describes the painting as "a room stopper." She pulled inspiration from her time living in the small horse town of Santa Ynez, California.

Australian-born Alana Clumeck was raised by artistic parents who owned a pottery studio during her youth. Although she grew up throwing pots, it wasn’t until she was pregnant with her second child that she began painting as creative therapy. For Alana, being an artist is entwined with motherhood. She works from her home studio, so she often paints while watching her children play. When the kids are at school, painting becomes precious meditative time alone. “Since my discovery of art came as a form of therapy, I still use it to paint out my thoughts or feelings,” says Alana. “I will often use symbolism within my paintings to represent how I feel.”
