Item details

Expressive and gestural, painted in acrylics and inks, metallics and archival european art spray. Created while the canvases are lying on the floor, I often move completely around the painting, casting my equine spell as I go. These paintings are not drawn ahead of time. I must see the image before I begin. This invokes and, I believe, engenders into the piece a sense of athleticism and intuitive movement that cannot be created any other way; my movement completes the piece. We are created together.

This is my art for me; an experience of birthing, beyond the canvas.

On custom stretched imported linen, the piece measures 48x48"x2"D, is gallery wrapped and ready to hang.

Meet the Creator

It is not horses that I paint; I paint the way they make me feel.

The form of the horse is an unlikely blend of pure sensuality in a uniquely architectural anatomy. My works celebrate this kinetic marvel, evoking the horse’s universal qualities of power and vulnerability. As in ancient cave paintings they are minimalist, primal, simple. Horses are for me a source of healing, energy and life-affirming.
“Art teaches you about what you have to say and how you want to say it. I feel very lucky to be so profoundly connected to horses because they are a unique animal in their ability to mirror the spirit, reflect our imagination, and inspire action.”
