About Kylee Parks

Kylee Parks is an equine artist and sculptor at Studio Thornrose in Los Olivos, California. She has had many of her custom model horses NAN qualify, winning multiple Grand, Reserve and division championships at live shows across the country in both breed and workmanship. One of Kylee's pieces was one of six finalists selected for the Breyerfest Best Customs Contest "Most Extreme" division in 2016. The following year Kylee won the Best Custom Contest "Most Extreme" division with her drastic custom Breyer Wixom, "Toadstool".

Kylee began art lessons as a child at the Beatrice Wood Art Studio in Ojai, CA and following high school, continued her art education at The Laguna College of Art in Laguna Beach, CA. She has also been continually influenced, inspired and encouraged by her artist grandfather, well known Dutch Impressionist, Jacobus Baas. She has more recently completed workshops in equine sculpture and finishwork with Sheryl Leisure, Morgen Kilbourn, Lynn Fraley and Maggie Bennett.

Kylee was practically born on a horse, riding and competing with various breeds in multiple disciplines at very young age. As a horse crazy young girl, Kylee also became an avid collector and exhibitor of Breyer model horses, telling anyone who would listen, "when I grow up, I'm going to design and create model horses...".  A dream that she is now happily making a reality.

When Kylee is not in her studio creating, she works assisting her husband, equine veterinarian Dr. Greg Parks and is busy keeping up with their 2 toddlers, Reese and Indie (already horse show lead line champs themselves!). On the rare occasion she can steal a moment away, you might find her heading for the hills aboard one of her two Arabian horses, or playing with the family at their Los Olivos home.
