A lifetime spent with horses has left me no less fascinated by their beauty and their wonderful characters. It is something I try to capture in my drawings. 

I am retired now and no longer have any horses, but my memory keeps them close to me. I have drawn horses since I was able to hold a pencil and, though my working life held me away from pursuing my passion for drawing, I now have the time to let my imagination free. 

Although I have worked with coloured pencils in the past, the onset of computers and art tablets has given me the chance to expand my vision and bring my ideas to life. I like to get down to very detailed, close work and the medium allows me to do just that. 

I hope that my artwork can show a glimpse of a horse's power and fluid movement along with the idea of freedom and grace which they represent.
