Horse Portraits - Melanie & Nicholas

My name is Melanie and I work along side my husband Nick in our my lovely garden studio in the UK. We have been creating horse portraits in oils and pencil drawings for the last 20 years. We specialize in highly detailed, traditionally hand painted portraits, Nick specialises in the oil portraits and I create all of the pencil portraits.

Each and every horse portrait we produce, is lovingly hand painted and drawn by ourselves, using traditional methods. Our sole aim is to capture the unique personality and character of 'your horse' on paper or canvas. We paint and draw with the greatest attention to detail, working from your own photographs. This allows us to accurately capture a true likeness and an everlasting memory to treasure for a very long time.

Hi Melanie and Nick,
I just wanted to say thank you so much, you guys have been amazing the whole way through and so helpful with everything, the changes, framing, and constant contact we really felt part of the making of this gorgeous portrait. No one could have done a better job, Nick has totally captured the essence of Harry it's absolutely incredible, better even than a photo of him he has so much presence in the painting. Katrine was over the moon with it and has said countless times that it's the best present she's ever had. So a huge thank you!! I look forward to my graduation where I'll hopefully be getting one done of my horses too! Fingers crossed, I'll have to hint at my parents!
Best wishes,
Maja x
