Horses have always meant a lot to me. I started drawing them when I was a little girl. There’s something majestic and magical about them, something that touches my heart every time I see a horse. When I was seven, I was allowed to go horseback-riding every Saturday afternoon – my favourite day of the week! My first ‘love’ was a black Shetland pony mare called ‘Rommy’. My own horse – an Icelandic gelding called ‘Kolbakur’ – came into my life when I was 13, thanks to my generous parents who had realised that I just NEEDED to have my own horse.
I have always loved horses and ponies, I have always wanted to be around them – and I thoroughly enjoy drawing them. If you’d like a portrait of your horse or pony, you’ve come to the right place – I know exactly how you feel about your equine friend. I am a pet portrait artist and an equine artist – I feel that being able to create equine portraits is a very special gift that I would like to share with other horse lovers.
