From the Artist:
"I have always loved to draw. As long as I can remember I have always drawn or painted horses. I will paint other subjects, wildlife and landscapes but inevitably I come back to my first love of horses. Creating art can be joyful, painful and theraputic for me. Above all I feel art should be beautiful, and give the viewer happiness".
