About Randee Fox:

“Whether I am teaching Nia, teaching people about horses, or making art, I approach each as an expressive art form that can be life-force giving. Inspiring others to realize their joy of self-expression through movement, horses and art is, perhaps, one of the greatest accomplishments I will make as an artist and as a human being in my lifetime.”

—Randee Fox
