hris Jolly, whose studio name is Jahlee Designs, entered the hobby in 1992, and her voracious appetite to customize, paint and sculpt has caught the attention and delight of many a collector. Obviously a quick study, her models have gotten better and better with every new creation, surprising and thrilling all of us who have been admiring her pieces from the sidelines. Chris paints in acrylics, and enjoys creating detailed epoxy manes and tails in her models, as well as putting as much expression and character into each equine face. She is constantly challenging herself to go one step further, and all of her work shows in the lovely pieces you will see in the following gallery.
