This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Horse-sculptor Lisa Gordon graduated with a bachelor's degree in sculpture and photography from California State University in San Bernardino. A debilitating illness, which led to physical paralysis, delayed her entry to graduate school though after a miraculous recovery, credited to her stubborn nature, Gordon began graduate studies at California State University at Fullerton.

It was during her graduate studies when Gordon's childhood interest in horses and her love of sculpture combined. Gordon had always been fascinated with horses and at the age of twelve she had her own. She spent a large part of her childhood riding and working in stables. She was devastated when the stables around her home were slowly sold to developers and the horses were sent away.

Gordon uses the horses as a "central metaphor for the human experience, often combining meaning and fun in the same piece." In the July 2002 edition of Southwest Art Magazine Gordon states, "People really do identify with the horse-- it's not like the zebra or giraffe. It's really the perfect medium for getting my ideas out. The horse is the bridge between me, the art, and the viewer."

Gordon's sculpture, "Career Moves" is on permanent display in the city of Loveland, Colorado where she has exhibited annually at the "Sculpture in the Park" exhibition.
