Judy Nordquist

Bronze Artist

When I reflect on the world’s troubles, I feel that I should be saving the world, by being a doctor, or by doing something else that is on the frontline saving lives. But then I remember the quote I received from one of my dear friends, Saul Fox, and I am at peace with what I do because I realize that I am saving the world in my own way by creating my artwork, I am doing my part!

"I want to thank you for creating the piece. No matter how troubled the world new is, or how tired or low my spirits may be, I know I can gaze upon that magnificent steed and see the world as it ought to be, free, intelligent, proud, virile and radiating a love of life in his every fibre and movement. You couldn’t have created all that by accident. But you did express it, with skill and eloquence, and you touched my soul."  Thank you, Saul Fox


Flying across the ivory sands of Egypt on a magnificent Arabian stallion with the Pyramids of Giza silhouetted against the radiant glow of dawn--the excitement of the Moroccan Fantasia at the royal stables as a guest of King Hassan II--the beautiful Fountains of Rome and classic sculptures of Michelangelo in the Vatican--that is what Dreams are made of!

Inspired by these memories, her imagination, and a life-long appreciation for the beauty of Arabians around the world, Judy Nordquist captures the character of her subjects in the timelessness of bronze. From graceful miniature foals to the powerful monumental life-size bronze "Wind Spirit", her sculptures transcend simple anatomical likeness to evoke the spirit of the Arabian horse. Expressing a love and passion for this magnificent creature, Judy's breathtaking bronze sculptures enrich municipal, private, corporate and fine art collections around the world.

Judy has nurtured two loves: horses and art. After studying art in high school and college, she spent several successful years in the commercial art field before focusing her complete attention on painting horses. Painting evolved into sculpting, which has proven to be the most exciting and challenging medium for her unique talent. The Arabian horse lifestyle has always blended many elements of the world culture. Judy Nordquist offers the industry a rare artistic gift, capturing the heart and character of her equine subjects in bronze.

Judy's daughter, Kim is now following in her footsteps, designing elegant equine jewelry and working alongside Judy to create their many bronze masterpieces.  Judy and Kim have traveled extensively in Egypt, Africa, Italy and the Middle East researching Middle Eastern history and culture. Their Collectors Limited Bronze Sculptures reflect the classic style of the 19th century French school of sculpture, "Les Animaliers", and range in size from miniature to life-size. Judy and Kim, live in the foothills of Scottsdale where they raise and care for their own Arabian horses, including an extraordinary treasure, a beautiful *Marwan Al Shaqab daughter out of the multi-champion mare Maggdalina!
