“Everything there is to know about me is in my paintings” – GUSTAV KLIMT
I specialise in Equine Art – portraying horses in pastel or oils. At times I use coloured pencil or acrylics.
When I am not painting horses I like to work on a variety of subjects such as unicorns, fantasy, landscapes & animals. My other passion is nature photography, especially dragonflies. I just love them!
Inspiration for my paintings comes from a variety of sources,
sometimes dreams & other times from the beauty that surrounds me – in the flora & fauna of our native Australian bush, flowers in the garden, my love for all things equine. Living close to the river I often venture to a special place amongst the canopy of trees where water flows over the smooth stones, with my camera in hand to capture the enchantment. Having a belief in the world of nature spirits, the Faerie Folk & magic I find that it fires up my imagination to create paintings.
The Horse is my animal guide – embodying strength, courage, endurance & new journeys. Also the Dragonfly is another totem always with me – bringing light, colour & the ability to manifest dreams as reality.

I live on a beef cattle farm on the Mid North Coast, NSW with my partner, 3 dogs & 6 horses. For many years I was involved with showing & breeding my own Paint Horses & Quarter Horses & I still ride whenever I can. Now I work full time from home producing works, mainly on a commission basis – realising my dream at last.
Please contact me if you are interested in a commission.
