Equus as Muse

My Etsy "Equus" shop is where I feature artworks where the horse is subject. Horses are a vital part of my life and my art practice. You can always find me at the barn if not in the studio! I have two bodies of work, so to speak, in this shop: "Art at the Ringside" and "Equus."

The "Ringside" series I create at the actual ringsides of horse shows and arenas. They are quick watercolors reflecting what's happening at the moment...horses schooling for a dressage class, jumpers galloping over oxers and even naughty, tense moments when it's not going so well. I imagine myself riding these horses, feeling the movement and aids, and I paint it as I feel it. Each is unique and emotive.

in the Equus series I work with the horse in myth and spirit. I am attracted to dark tales of the Apocalypse as well as the lighter imagery of the horse as guiding spirit. The Equus Series shows horses in motion through an abstract landscape. The strong, emotive gestures in these images suggest movement forward, a way of getting through and getting beyond one’s own personal history. The horse inspires and perhaps represents my own artistic process.

Welcome to my Equus shop! I am an artist and avid equestrian. I have been a professional artist for many years and work in a wide variety of mediums and subject matter. I exhibit in galleries and create original and commissioned artworks. I am pleased to bring some of my horse-related artworks and items into one place. The majority of the art featured here is original and unique (please see my "About" page for more details).

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
  • Money Order
  • Check
Paypal and credit cards are the best payment options to ensure a speedy transaction. I will also accept money orders and personal checks, but I will not ship an item until your check has cleared at my bank, which may take from 5-7 business days from receipt.
I ship worldwide!

I usually use the U.S. Postal Service for shipping, choosing Priority Mail, to give you the best combination of speed, insurance and reliability. However, I prefer using UPS or FedEx if shipping more expensive original artworks and will provide a quote upon request if it’s not already listed.
I base my shipping prices on the maximum actual shipping cost, plus materials, and will refund any savings in excess of $2 in overpaid shipping costs. Some artworks may include a modest handling/materials fee to recover some time & materials costs. I will combine items whenever possible, and refund the cost savings to you. Insurance is included into the shipping price. If you choose another method of shipping, opt out of insuring the package, you assume responsibility for a lost or damaged package. All items are carefully packed for safe and efficient shipping. All orders are sent within 3 weeks (or as stated in the listing) to the address provided on Etsy. Expedited shipping also available.

INTERNATIONAL customers, please note the international shipping rates I provide are estimates based on USPS, Insured Priority Mail. I choose USPS Priority Mail, whenever possible, to ship around the globe as it provides insurance AND tracking. I recognize it can be expensive but because I ship mostly original or limited edition artworks, I feel safer having it fully covered. On certain pieces, less expensive, uninsured first class shipping can be arranged (see above) or expedited shipping can be added if you'd like your package more quickly. I am not responsible for custom/duty fees or postal transit times.

If you need special shipping arrangements or gift packaging, please convo me and I'll do my best to accommodate.

Please CONVO me if you have questions or suggestions about shipping, I will be happy to assist!

If an item returns as an unclaimed package I am not responsible for any shipping fees and the item will be re-listed unless the buyer asks for item to be reshipped at their own expense.
