" Having a passion for horses since childhood, I have a compulsive desire to paint them. I'm inspired by the graceful shapes that they create, light and shade, and I see a whole variety of colours in their coats. Having owned several horses and competed in dressage I understand the conformation and movement which gives a horse its character and gracefulness .
Dogs have been a part of my life since childhood so I completely understand their different characters, their loyalty and their ability to give us unconditional love - which you can see in their eyes and the enthusiastic greetings they give us when we get home "
I am an established professional UK Equine and animal artist. I am an Associate Member of the Society of Equestrian Artists and currently two of my paintings are in their Annual Horse in Art Exhibition. As well as creating Equine Paintings for sale.
Please contact me to discuss a commissioned artwork.
*I cannot currently give a timescale for a commission as I am very busy with exhibition and gallery work - please contact me to discuss availability*
My painting style is a blend of impressionism and realism and my aim is capture character movement.

Purchasing a Painting
I have sold many horse dog and cat paintings over the years and have had work re-sold on through fine art galleries. I now usually sell through online galleries and you can purchase my work through my galleries on Art2Arts or ArtGallery.co.uk
I've owned dogs in the past and several horses on and off over the years and specialised and competed in dressage, so I understand the anatomy and the importance of conformation of horses well, so I can portray the subject faithfully.

I can send your painting unframed if you wish to arrange your own framing, but I can arrange a bespoke framing service if required. For shipping I use Royal Mail Special Delivery, or Parcel Force if it exceeds the size limits.
