If you know anything about astrology you will recognise that a Fire horse is a Chinese zodiac sign, apparently female fire horses were not very popular as they were deemed too headstrong for marriage!
I am a Firehorse and it has been my inspiration to create Equine Art my way.
I started my Artistic life drawing horses and being told that I needed to adopt a more realistic approach. Apparently blue horses and unicorns were not considered acceptable!
I then embarked on a mission to observe and study my subjects in order to produce more realistic Artworks. My passion for these beautiful and majestic creatures blossomed into ownership of my first horse a part bred Arab called Bilbo Baggins. Having adopted a more figurative style I concentrated on producing portraits and horse racing subjects.
After studying and realising my ambition to obtain a degree in Fine Art at Buckingham New University I finally found the courage and freedom to express my self. My early renderings took form and my fantasies developed into colourful and vibrant paintings. I knew it was the soul of horses that interested me and how to express this in my work. I use many mediums but find watercolour and pen a most satisfying combination; the watercolour with its free and unpredictable nature is tamed by the pen marks, much like a horses spirit can be tamed.
I work from my home studio in Hillingdon, London, Middlesex and accept commissions from all over the UK and overseas.
I currently still produce more figurative works and commissions but if you like something different please take a look at my Horoscope Horses and Spirit Horses Galleries.
