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 influences for me. After leaving school, I studied window display and art history, and some graphic design. I qualified as a Window Dresser 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 horses, but also paint dogs and cats. Owning these pets 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 horse its character and gracefulness. I am regularly commissioned to paint portraits. 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. Past exhibitions include: - The Society of Equestrian Artists' Annual Exhibition - "Horse in Art 2012" - 20th November - 1st December 2012 The Menier Gallery, London - "The Horse in Art" August 26th - 19th September 2010, Obsidian Art Gallery, Stoke Mandeville, Buckinghamshire - Fringinhoe Wildlife Visitor Centre - 2003

Artwork

I bought it as a Christmas present for my wife. She so enjoyed the dressage events in a first visit to the Horse of the Year show earlier in the year and is delighted to have such a faithful representation of the extended trot in Lorna Dredger''s pastel.

Service

The overall service is excellent. I was hesitant at first about buying art over the internet, but I have now bought 4 paintings and been delighted with all of them.
