Artwork – animals

My love for horses started my career into the art scene. Here are some selections of drawings and studies done covering many animals. Most all are in graphite and a few in color.  Commissioned work  from photos are welcomed.

The Morab consists of at least 1/4 part of only two breeds, the Arabian and the Morgan.

      Trisha,
      Thank you so much for your kind words. He’s my biggest fan (unless I’m forgetting to cook because I’m wrapped up in my work and eating pretzels!)
