“Fascination with horses predates everything. Before being a mother, teacher, artist, and most other labels one can think of. I think I was born loving horses.”
To be able to express my love for these beautiful sentient beings through my art has been a privilege and joy. It would be a pleasure to create a portrait of your equine friend for you. Portraits are created using a variety of media, so please head over to the commission page to learn more. I have a few original artworks that are available for sale, as well as prints. If you don’t see a sale link next to an artwork, or it is not on the purchase page, please contact me and I’ll be happy to assist. All digital drawings are hand signed and are archival giclée prints on Hahnemühle paper or canvas.
Sandy on Turps
These are the latest portraits I’ve was commissioned to draw of a brother and sister duo. This is a pastel drawing on pastel mat. It is 70cm x 100cm. The brief was to show Turps’ strength and dynamic movement while. I think I captured that. And Chris on Sassy, that relaxed but alert and ready to go feeling was what I was aiming for. The client is very happy with the artworks.

Standing in the Rain – Sold
It often takes me by surprise, what my inner voice has to say. When I allow the artwork to speak for itself, and not try and control the work with my mind, the result is often a bit of a surprise to myself. I don’t always know what my inner self wants to express. This work may seem very different to my sculptural pieces, but the process is much the same. Here I push oil paint around with my fingers, and in my Porcelain pieces I push and manipulate clay. Yes, this pieces has been completed just using my fingers, no brushes. My oil paintings are very different to my digital work, in that my drawings are very much a study in technical observation and mark making. I hope you enjoy this painting as much as I did, creating it.
Oil on Canvas. 102 x 76cm . Finger painted.
Just love the inquisitive expression on this character. With travel restricted and more time to explore my own practice, I took out my oil paints again. I’m very happy with the more expressive nature of the medium, especially as I would say this is a finger painting, having ditched the brushes and limiting them to the finer hair strokes and bits around the eyes. Oil on canvas. 75 x 110cm
Limited edition signed Giclée Prints of the original are available.

This portrait travelled overseas and it is always exciting that my art gets to travel the world even if I have to stay at home. I used more than one photographic reference, as often one photograph doesn’t quite do the trick. I do ask that clients try and provide me with images that clearly show the eye and coat colours accurately. The more details I can see, the better.
Pastel portraits cost $450 (50 x 60cm) sized paper.
