Having never even entered the world of digital, a thought came about her 13years ago to download Photoshop. She had never used the medium before and can’t recall where the inspiration came from to design some wall art for her own walls . But she did, and what she did create, caused a buzz and she was urged to start a business.

Fast forwards to now, she has decided to take her discovery seriously and embark on the journey of digital media being used to create stunning masterpieces. Having exhibited at Waterstones, she received some beautiful comments such as ‘your art gave me escape from my mind’ and ‘a very spiritualism art’.

gg1GG endeavours to depict the horse in a state of freedom, expressing the true nature and spirit of the horse. Being a horse lover and owner of a beautiful grey warmblood, she understands horses at a deep level, and understands their need for expression.

This is visible within her work, their titles and the stories which accompany them.

To create her work she uses still media to transform what was once a boring photograph into a stunning visual piece of art, capturing the true spirit of equine.
