I’ve always loved both horses & art, and in 2004 I was honoured to help bring horse ‘therapy’ to the UK. During this beautiful process, I discovered the connection between horses helping humans and my other love, art. Something beautiful and amazing can happen when bringing these two together, and a beautiful creative connection can be made bringing about a wonderful non-verbal means of self expression. I have always painted for my own therapeutic or healing quality, until recently when I was asked so many times if I sold my art that I decided to do so, and here we are.
‘Paint’ came about inspired deeply within my heart by the many traditions of painting horses, and the beautiful coloured horses of the Native Americans, Gyspy Vanners, coloured cobs and so on. Whether horses have been painted in the caves of old, on porcelain or in ceremony/celebration, man has painted horse since ancient times. During one of the training courses we put on in 2005, as part of the ceremony/celebration at the end of a week long course, we gathered to paint directly onto the horses – the horses knew it was an amazing highlight of our week and behaved so reverently, and impecably.
In watercolour pencil, I hope to convey something of the beauty of the Spirit of Equus, and reflect something of the beauty of art, horses and spirituality coming together as One.
