Art has always been a theme in my life. I went to school to become an art historian but found myself making a living as an artisan and muralist, eventually running my own decorative painting company. In recent years I have returned to my original passion, painting on canvas. Initially I worked across a broad range of subject matter but found myself returning to the horse again and again. As a rider myself I have a deep passion for the equine human relationship. I find that painting is a natural extension of my keen interest in trying to understand my subject matter and express it's mystery and beauty.
