“​From the time I was able to hold a pencil and make somewhat recognizable pictures on construction paper, horses have been what I have drawn. I do not know why, having been exposed only to television horses and never having received a pony from Santa As soon as I was earning my own living, a horse was my first purchase. Other horses followed, weekend horse shows, Pony Club days, the Ottawa Valley Hunt, making great friends with whom I am still in touch today- the memories are wonderful. Cattle and cows became another interest of mine. Their bodies have such interesting angles and they are gentle and curious creatures.

Anatomical correctness is important to me, so I strive to present the animals as realistically as possible. I also like to present the horses and cattle in their day to day environment, perhaps to tell a visual story about their lives.

I accept commissions and will also do portraits of other animals.”
