Sonja Caywood

 
Dayton, Wyoming

Artist's Statement

"Growing up ranching, livestock inspires much of my imagery.  I render animals in portrait situations, personifying them in a manner sometimes confrontational, sometimes as a casual conversation or a glimpse into a candid moment.  Creating a record of these beasts' personalities pulls them from the "en masse" settings we usually see them in and makes us look twice at the animals in our own lives.

I constantly back across my studio as I paint, assuring that painterly strokes of amplified oil colors read realistically from across a room.  Viewed up-close, the abstract components of the composition separate, revealing a creative assemblage of shapes and colors."

Caywood's paintings hang in private and corporate collections across most of the U.S. and in ten foreign countries on six continents, and two are in the Wyoming State Capitol's permanent collection.  Caywood's work was featured most recently in Western Art Collector (Mar ’17, May '16), Southwest Art Magazine (Jan. '15), WSGA's Cow Country (Summer '14), and Wyoming Lifestyle Magazine (Summer '16 & Sprinter '14).  She and her husband Terry live in Dayton, WY, and have two grown children.

"Curly Joe"

Oil on canvas

Growing up with Herefords, I’m partial to their white faces, especially the curly ones.  Herefords are getting harder to find in this part of the country, but I paint them when I can.

"Three Amigos"

Oil on linen

Working closely with the clients and their savvy interior designer, I was able to portray their horses in a way that really fit the room this large painting was created for.
