Welcome to www.horse-artist.com!
I am a professional equine and pet portrait artist. I specialise in handmade, life-like custom horse portraits - my mediums are pastels, graphite, charcoal, watercolour and coloured pencils. My horse portraits hang on walls in horse lovers' homes all over the world as commissions are accepted internationally. I endeavour to create a realistic portrait of your horse or pony that captures your equine friend's essence - their look and personality. Please take a moment to browse my horse portraits gallery. My latest artwork can be found here and on my blog.
"You can really tell that you love horses, Sandra. There's something special about all your horse work,
I just love it."
Claire, fellow pet portrait artist
Your horse portrait is drawn from the photos you send me (by e-mail or by snailmail) so you can choose your favourite pose, that special 'look' that is so typcial of your equine friend and that you love the most. I am able to combine different photos in order to create that perfect portrait of your horse or pony. I welcome any breed - whether it is a Shetland pony mare, a Thoroughbred foal, a Welsh pony gelding or a Shire horse stallion.
I thoroughly enjoy drawing pets and wildlife, with horses and ponies being my favourite subject. I think it takes a lot more than artistic ability to create a good horse portrait which touches the heart and which will be a lasting memory of your special friend. Horses are not easy to draw - yet I feel I have got the ability as well as the knowledge and, what is more, love of all things equine which enable me to draw your horse the way you see it. I have been drawing horses since I was 3 years old, proudly presenting my Mum with a new drawing every day. I started horseback riding when I was 7, and was given my first horse - an Icelandic horse - at the age of 13. You can find out more about Kolbakur's story by clicking here.
All of my portraits are drawn with love. I like to find out about my 'models' and 'connect' with them while I'm drawing. I have loved, ridden and lived with horses all my life and know how you feel about yours. You just can't be unhappy around horses.
Horse portraits or any pet portrait make for lovely and very special gifts - personalised gift vouchers are available. I draw any pet - please go to my pet portraits website for more examples of my artwork.
I can't wait to draw your horse or pony for you!
