Based in United Kingdom
I am an Equine Artist and an Associate Member of the Society of Equestrian Artists.
My interests in art and design were established in childhood. My father’s profession as an architect and my mother’s talent for oil painting were major influences for me. After leaving school, I studied window display and art history, and some graphic design. I qualified as a Window Dresser and continued to paint as a hobby, painting people, still life and animals for many years until it eventually became my career.
I specialise mainly in painting horses, but also paint dogs. Owning these pets in the past has given me a greater insight and knowledge of their anatomy, conformation and different character types. Having been involved in competition dressage, I understand the importance of engagement, outline and forwardness which gives a horse its character and gracefulness.
I have exhibited and sold in various galleries, art shops and exhibitions. I have sold work online overseas as far afield as the US, Australia and Canada. I have sold many works in online auctions. I have also had work re-sold at at a Fine Art and Collectables Auction house.
