Growing up in the Mallee region of Victoria, horses were a huge part of family life. My father was a horse trainer/breeder . I was always fearful of the horses in our care and endeavored to keep a safe distance. It wasn’t until adulthood when I had the opportunity to do a commission of a horse that sparked my reconnection and appreciation of the beauty of the horse.
I thoroughly enjoyed representing the muscle structure, athleticism and power of the horse in various compositions and mediums. I am totally in ore of these magnificent creatures that deserved to be protected and respected.
