From my Easel to You
Why do I paint? I was asked that question once, the answer was, because I love it, because I can, but I paint because it is who I am. It is a part of me that cannot be denied.
To paint the soft eye of a horse or the muzzle with its fine whiskers, the grace and beauty of movement, for me is my dream. I have loved and lost some wonderful animals of my own, they taught me the importance of being true to your animals as I paint them, the finished piece must capture all that is them.
I’m very proud to showcase my Fine art prints in the shop. When you buy from me you are not buying a mass produced product you are buying hundreds of hours of experimentation, years of frustration and moments of pure joy, something made with feeling and pride.
I was also invited to show paintings at the prestigious World Cup Polo event in the Hunter Valley in 2018 and to be part of the Emerson Exhibition at the highly acclaimed Emirates Wolgan Valley Resort in the Blue Mountains.
To be an artist is who I am to the exclusion of all else. When you are my client you get a piece of my life, a piece of my soul.

MEET THE TEAM
I would like to introduce you to my wonderful team members, I could not manage without their love and support.
My name is Ted; I am the CEO, I am the one who is responsible for keeping this whole show on the road! For making sure Mum works hard to fulfil her commitment to you, to give you the most beautiful painting possible. I am also required to keep others (namely Cloudy and Scrumpy) from bothering her, to keep her company on my strategically placed bed and to also make sure she has breaks, mostly so I can get treats.
creative director & quality control
My name is Cloudy, I am the creative director, my role is to direct…. Creatively….. not really sure what that means but apparently I’m very good at it. I am also responsible for quality control, rest assured I constantly jump up on Mum’s lap while she is painting to make sure she is doing the best possible job for you. I also believe I’m the one in charge of quality control of the treats.
My name is Scrumpy, I am PR and Sales, I am excellent at my job just because once you look into my eyes, my chocolate muffin eyes, see only my eyes, you will just melt and I will be able to get you to do anything I want!! Although, I may have to work on my technique a bit, as it doesn’t seem to be working with Mum when I’m turning on my best chocolate muffin eyes to get the treats.
Hi my name is Riv, I am the apprentice. I am only young and have a lot to learn but one day I hope to take over the reins of mum’s business and my aim is to keep it all driving forward, but at the moment I am a bit of a dogsbody. I am learning a lot, how to play with a stick, how to put on my mud makeup just when mum wants to take my photo and how to play catch me if you can. Ted, Cloudy and Scrumpy are wonderful, they encourage me in everything I do. Mum says she is hoping I get there in the end.
