About the Book
Features & Details
As an artist, I have dedicated myself to what inspires me most, the equine form. I am drawn to the lines in a horse's conformation; fluid, angular, curvaceous and graceful. In my artwork, I look for ways to express these contours, accentuating their energy and movement through colour, brushwork, and other tools. My work often encourages a strong connection between the horse and the viewer. My process begins out in the field. In a paddock there are usually one or two, often mares, that captivate my interest and evoke the desire to create. Back in my studio, I cover the walls with field notes, photographs and studies. As I am creating, I explore ideas on how I can expand and accentuate the lines that interest me the most. I know the work is complete when the story that I have woven with paint conjures the visceral memory of each horse and captures its unique presence on canvas.
