I am not ashamed to admit that my favourite animal is the horse, both as a portrait and as a beautiful, vivacious subject to capture in various media.

I joined the Society of Equestrian Artists (SEA) and have exhibited at London's Mall Galleries and at Newmarket.

Some of my recent works for sale are of the aristocratic Akhal Tekes in their native steppes of Turkmenistan - hence the pun in their titles!

While you are here have a look at my series of Copper Horses - textured bas-relief work with embossing and pearlescent powders mounted on copper.
