“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. Currently, portraits are created using either digital drawing or soft pastels or oils. All digital drawings are hand signed and archival giclée prints on Hannemuhle paper.
Standing in the Rain
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.

$750 excluding postage and handling.
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 Commissioned Portrait was done in soft Rembrandt pastels and is 50cm x 60m on acid free Fabriano paper.
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. Unframed.

Pen and Ink Drawing
It was such a pleasure to draw this beautiful noble horse for a client. They wanted a pen and ink drawing. I don’t often do pen drawings for clients, as there is no room for error. I use archival marker pens or acid free paper, so assured the ink won’t fade. Pen and Ink drawings are limited to A4 size.
