KAYSVILLE, Utah (ABC4 News) — A Kaysville teen brought home an international award for her art piece that depicts her unique love of horses. 

Maria Mills, 16, placed second in the world in a global contest hosted by the American Quarter Horse in Amarillo, Texas. The theme focused on the unique love of horses by capturing the spirit of the American Quarter Horse. Maria’s diverse art piece depicts the spirit of multiple sports from the equestrian world.

The young artist finds inspiration from her love of horses and her desire to one day own a horse farm and art studio. Maria’s father, Michael Mills said his daughter’s passion is unlike any other, “Yes, most kids like horses, but Maria was different. You could tell there was a unique connection.”

Maria will begin college this fall with a goal to become an Equine Veterinarian. She hopes her art will help pay for college and one day become a full-time business.
