Hello, and thank you so much for visiting my website, I hope you like what you see!
I am Georgina Leigh and I am lucky enough to live in the beautiful city of Bath, UK.
I have been drawing and painting since childhood and after studying for a degree in Bath, and a brief career in Graphic Design, I combined my love of horses and my passion for fine art to become a full time equestrian artist.
Most of my work is commissioned based, and I have produced many portraits of horses and other animals from photographs that have been supplied by my clients, or if needed, from my own reference photos and life sketches.
Anyone who owns or knows horses will be able to tell you what a powerful, gentle and amazing creature the horse is. I find it so fascinating that a flight animal will allow us humans to be part of his herd if we treat him well. Amazing still that he allows us to climb on his back for our work, leisure and enjoyment. The bond and trust that is achievable with your equine friend is a truly wonderful thing, he can teach you things about yourself without even saying a word. I believe that this profound understanding of the relationship a human and a horse can have comes through in my paintings. I am told by many of my customers that not only have I captured their horses look, I have also captured their soul.
Nothing makes me happier than to make other people happy and if I can do that by creating something with my art skills, then that is the best feeling in the world! I have many happy customers and many repeat customers, so I think that I might be doing something right!
I would love to hear from you, so please get in touch if you would like to know more about commissioning an equine portrait painting, or if you have any questions at all.
