As an artist people always ask me why I paint so many horses and what entices me to paint them with such vigor and determination. Well, anyone who knows me knows that I have so much passion for these creatures. They were a big part of my childhood. Horseback riding lessons were also a gift that my father gave me before he passed away. He showed me how amazing these animals can be and the wild hearts they have. As time passes, things change and even though I don’t have any horses right now in my life, my soul has always been tied to them.
Painting horses reminds me of the freedom and energy I feel when riding and by simply being around them. It allows me to have a piece of my heart in all of my paintings and gives me the chance to be close to my father, always.
I paint my horses in acrylics in a modern/contemporary style. I often paint with bold colours to convey energy and movement throughout the paintings.
As an artist, I just want to keep growing and learning. For me, it’s important to learn with every work I make and continue demonstrating the passion that I feel in every painting I make.
