Who is Georgina Leigh 'The Horse Artist'?

Georgina Leigh and Martin Clunes British Horse Society
Hello, and thank you so much for visiting my website, I am sure that you would like to know a little bit more about me before choosing me as your artist, so please read on and get in touch if you would like to work with me.

I am Georgina and I live in the beautiful city of Bath, UK.
As you can probably tell, I love art and I love much so, that I felt compelled to join my two passions and create my pseudonym 'The Horse Artist'!
Most of my commissions are indeed of horses but I do love painting and drawing other animals including dogs, cats and wildlife and even wedding venues and schools! 

So where did The Horse Artist begin?

I grew up in the Oxfordshire Countryside surrounded by fields and animals and not much else, which was fine by me! I had a couple of dogs and ponies, chickens and ducks as well as our yard cat, who liked to sleep all day and work all night.
I liked to draw and scribble from an early age and would often copy photos from 'Horse and Hound Magazine' of the wonderful dressage horses, eventers and show ponies.

My passion for drawing really took off at school where I was lucky enough to have a very inspirational teacher, who made all of our art lessons fun (at least that's what I thought - maybe everyone else wouldn't agree?) I continued my love for art through higher education, going on to Art School in Bath where I studied for 3 years, returning to Oxford and working as a Graphic Designer for a few years and then coming back to Bath with a couple of children a husband and a dog!

Now with 3 children the same husband and a different dog, I am filling my time to capacity with painting and drawing, being a mum (and a not very efficient house cleaner - sorry about that family), riding my beautiful Spanish PRE accompanied by our faithful Cavapoo dog, so pretty much everything I did as a child, minus the looking after children and pretending to be an adult! I have a lot to be thankful for!

As for my art, I also love to offer my skills to charities and have been involved creating artwork for Willberry Wonderpony, and have painted horse sculptures for World Horse Welfare for their London, Windsor and Ascot art trail, where I was also invited to meet lots of lovely people including celebrities and Royals.

Pictured above is BBC Dragon's Den, 'Dragon' Deborah Meaden with 'Raju', the sculpture I painted to represent the brick kiln horses struggles.

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 a drawing or a painting. I can also help if you are unsure whether your photos are clear enough to obtain a realistic portrait. I am happy to discuss any project large or small!
