the stunning riding pony stallion INXS of Sefton aka Mikey
I painted this for his owners 40th birthday. Even though in the original photo he was plated up and wearing his bridle it was decided to just have him in his glorious natural state.
So wonderful for me to paint.

Painted this back in 2013! The stunningly handsome Junior, he was a Christmas present!
He was quite difficult to paint due to his spots being on his skin as well as in his coat and all different shades and colors. Kept getting lost in them! lol.
If anyone is thinking about Christmas paintings you do need to let me know as I'm pretty much booked up right through into next year, and I will only be taking a small amount of Christmas work this year. So ho ho ho, now is the time to start thinking! yes in July!! lol ... See MoreSee Less

When someone asks me to paint there pet, I get so excited! It never gets old!
Each time I get such a sense of anticipation of how it will look, what personality will emerge as I paint!
I often feel as if they are with me. I will often get teary if they have passed away.
Its as if they are in the room with me!
I appreciate the trust placed in me, each and every time, that I will capture your special, loved pet.
My love of commission work flows strongly and I cant wait to do more.
This is the beautiful Maggie!!

I'm so close now I can taste it!! omg, only the neck to go.
This has been an epic effort for me, but I will be honest, I have actually enjoyed every minute of it! There will be some tweaking to do, but I love this.
Am thinking of calling it,
what do you think of that for a name?…

finished commission work for today, so put the background on this lovely boy! cant wait to do all his swishy mane and forelock!
Doing the background was wonderfully messy! love blending with my finger tips, feeling the texture of the paper and the pastel as it combines! ... See MoreSee Less
golly! Painted this back in 2017 for the World Cup Polo at the Sydney Polo club! This seems like it was a life time ago. After painting this I said I really wanted to paint more polo and I really do, but I never have!
time is not my friend, I have so many things on the go at any given time and so much more I want to do! I have some truly amazing commission work under way, and a load more coming up, for some very patient wonderful people! So I'm trying to do the original work at night after I'm done with commissions for the day.
So much to do so little time! lol, chanting Dori, keep on swimming, keep on swimming......
