As a North Dakota native, Sandi Dahl grew up around the colorful plains and beautiful landscapes of North Dakota. Living on a farm, she was inspired by the beauty in her own backyard. Dahl graduated from the University of North Dakota with a Bachelor’s degree in Home Economics. After graduation, she started traveling the US sharing her artwork at national art fairs and galleries.

As many of Dahl’s artworks show, Mares Tales portrays a serene North Dakota landscape with prairie grasses and trees, and a blue sky with scattered clouds. The nature tells its own story throughout this piece of artwork. However, as the title states, Mares Tales invites the viewer to observe the prairie through the lens of the horses in the fields of North Dakota.
