I specialise in Equine Art - portraying horses in pastel, oils & acrylics. Other subjects I like to paint are lansdscapes, fantasy & animals.
Born in Newcastle, NSW Australia I have been drawing horses since the age of 3. I spent my school age years in Auckland, New Zealand & took Art as a subject at High School, entering a pencil drawing of my first horse in an Equine magazine Art Competition at the age of 13 - winning 2nd prize. I sold my first horse sketch at 15, then went onto sell more work after leaving school. I have worked with horses most of my life, riding, breeding & showing them for many years. I'm inspired by the works of Gustav Klimt, Susan Seddon Boulet & Orren Mixer.

Returning to Australia I studied Showcard Ticketwriting & Calligraphy at Newcastle TAFE College - later moving to the Mid North Coast of New South Wales. Discovering soft pastels after enrolling in a local course and also oils, I began using these 2 favourite mediums in my work & have since won over 70 awards. Pastels are a wonderful medium for portraying the beauty of the horse, they capture the softness & reality of these gorgeous animals. Oils give a richness & depth to Equine studies. At times I will use acrylics, when I want to work quickly. This is how my 'Painted Ponies' series came about - bright coloured Paint & Appaloosa horses full of energy & spirit.

Breeding & showing my own Paint & Quarter Horses for many years gave me plenty of experience studying their conformation & anatomy, as well as numerous subjects to paint. Inspiration for my work comes from a variety of sources - sometimes dreams & other times from the beauty that surrounds me - in the unique flora & fauna of the native Australian bush, flowers in the garden, my love for all things equine & a fascination for magic & fantasy.

Having been a professional artist for over 15 years I now work from my home based studio on commissions, finally realising my dream of becoming a full-time artist. Paintings available for sale at all times & the studio is open for viewing by appointment. I live on a farm on the Mid North Coast of NSW, Australia with my partner, 3 dogs & 6 horses. We raise beef cattle - mainly Angus.
