Lorna Lancaster ASEA - Equine Artist
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 artistic influences for me.
After leaving school, I studied window display, drawing and painting and art history, and some graphic design. I qualified as a Window Display Artist 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 dressage horse and horse paintings, and dog paintings; owning horses, dogs and cats 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 dressage horse its character and gracefulness. I have recently had the honour to have been promoted to Associate Member of the Society of Equestrian Artists.
I have completed many dog horse and cat commissioned portraits and am currently accepting commissions. 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.
