Equine Artists & Photographers

Adrian Martinez has painted three murals for the White House

Martinez 1Growing up in Washington, D.C., horses were unusual.

These “strange” animals only appeared in force during Presidential inaugurations, and I never missed a chance to see the mounted park police along Pennsylvania Avenue as the black limousines slowly drove by.

Martinez 2Pondering these military horses while walking to school one morning, I was suddenly confronted with an enormous brown leg.

Holding my ground and daring to look up, before me loomed a horse of stupefying size.

A magnificent Clydesdale in a gleaming brass and leather harness stood completely at ease ,unperturbed by the roaring traffic - an appearance not entirely of this world for a small boy.

Martinez 3Decades later ,as a full-time artist in Texas, a large commission required hands-on experience working cattle with the legendary Waggoner Ranch cowboys.

The sweat, danger, red dirt, and screaming cattle showed me another kind of magic - men and horses becoming one.

Martinez 4With the election of President Bush, I was back in D.C.

Over the next eight years I painted three murals for the White House.

One afternoon in the Oval Office, the President and I were discussing art in general and horse painting in particular.

It occurred that my life with art and horses had come full circle.

Adrienne Morella's passion for art and animals shows in her gorgeous photography

WEST CHESTER, Pa.--My name is Adrienne Morella, owner of Adrienne Morella Photography.

Morella 1I am a horse girl, living in West Chester Pa., with my two rescue kitties Ella and Parker and Arabian horses King and Sammy.

I have had a lifelong passion for art and animals and have found photography so rewarding.

I am able to do what I love, capturing special moments with animals with their people.

Morella 2I have been shooting photography for the past 10 years and have within the last two made it into a business.

After attending two workshops with amazing photographer April Visel, I began practicing more with beautiful light.

I feel anyone can take a good photo, but when you have nature's beautiful sun helping you, images can turn into pieces of art.

Morella 3My favorite things to shoot are portraits of horses and their owners.

You can see the bond and relationship between the two, every horse has their own personality and I have yet to have a horse not be happy having pictures taken, lol.

Whether it's a young child with their pony, a teen with their horse. doing senior portraits, a woman and her best friend who lets me style her and have her special shoot day, or a best friend in their final years who's owner wants to make sure she has beautiful images before the time is too late....I love doing all of them.

I find what I do very special and intimate.

Morella 4It is a privilege when someone wants me to photograph them or their horse or family.

I always make sure I deliver something to them that's amazing.

Please check out my website, http://www.adriennemorellaphotography.zenfolio.com.

I look forward to working with you!

Adrienne Morella

A very special gift of Custom Art by Nancy Baldwin of Windland Farm

DALTON, Pa.--Windland Farm, Art and Antiques, was born from a childhood self-taught hobby of painting.

Baldwin 1I have had a lifelong involvement with animals; horse showing, foxhunting, breeding and racing thoroughbreds and having rescued donkeys and pot belly pigs as part of the family has given me a wonderful array of subjects.

During college I supplied Bonwit Tellers in New Y0rk City with my wildlife custom needlepoint canvases.

Baldwin 2Shortly after, I created my own “Foxpoint “needlepoint shop.

Simultaneously, I was doing custom art and antiques for M.J. Knoud on Madison Avenue  and the Paolo Gucci Haberdashery, both in New York City,  to accentuate their window displays.

My professional life course changed when I was offered a position for administrator of criminal court for my county.

I became liaison to the judges, defense attorneys and District Attorney.

This was followed by a position for lecturer for the county’s Drug and Alcohol Criminal Rehabilitation Program.

Baldwin 3Because animals and art were always a constant and compelling force, I decided to “take the leap” and turn my pastime and passion into a full time business from my farm in Pennsylvania.

I have been shown wonderful support from my loyal friends and customers.

My participation at the Devon and Pennsylvania National Horse Shows for the past 30 years has been a joy.

I would love to do custom work of your dog, horse, sporting scene, or portrait of your favorite person, etc.

Please don’t hesitate to contact me and we can discuss any other ideas you might have.

Baldwin 4My new gift line of suede totes and pillows make great gifts too!

Hope to hear from you.

Ruthann Perry is a wood and found-object sculptor

I am a wood and found-object sculptor.

Perry 1Most recently, horses have been my primary subject, although I've also created sculptural landscapes.

As my life has progressed, so has what I make and how I make it.

The desire to make something from nothing has always been a part of me.

During my childhood—when being one of six kids meant not having a lot of "stuff"—I knew I could go out into the woods and find tiny dishes for my dolls in the tops of acorns, make silverwarefrom delicate branches, and arrange food using tiny seeds and berries.

Perry 2These experiences developed into skills for scavenging and building.

For 15 years, I worked in New York prop making and design for national TV shows and regional theatre.

As was the case in my childhood, in this business it was: “If you can’t buy it, build it.”

My true artistic imagination awakened, however, when I moved out of the city and began teaching art.

The lives and work of the artists I taught gave me the courage to think on my own, and try things in my own art.

Perry 4Similarly, witnessing the creative process of children inspired me to think again like the child who searched for and built from flotsam and jetsam.

A longtime salvager, my studio was filled with foundry molds, architectural remnants and boxes of wood bits that I had accumulated as “objects of beauty.”

Things like industrial molds appealed to my senses—the quality of the wood, the studies in shapes, even
the primary colors they were often painted.

But it was also the feeling that these pieces had previously been made and used, and then worn over time.

Reusing them was important to me, and I know that I wanted to assemble them for my art.

The first horse I made was a head.

Perry 3The mane was a flowing bit of furniture trim, and black industrial mold in the shape of a number 9 served as the head and neck.

The collected pieces of wood almost formed themselves into a horse; putting them together was a revelation to me.

Since then, I have continued to merge my love of horses with my passion for found-objects.

I translate knobs, chair backs, chandelier fixtures, and any other number of parts into horses, and I continue to salvage materials.

I am always on the lookout for a neck, a mane, a tail…

Love of horses equals love of art for Nancy Belden

NEWTON, N.J.--The love of horses and not having one, caused me to teach myself to draw.

Belden 1First doing oil and pastel portraits of friend's horses and my husband's ( an Equine Veterinarian ) clients while raising four children, many horses and pets.

In the 80s, I moved from Long Island to Newton, N,J., and taught myself sculpture, and eventually remarried.

I now work in Super Sculpey,which I can bake, which makes it easier to ship to a foundry.

Belden 2My own work is cast in bronze.

I have been working for several years for All Things Equine, doing sculpture awards for horse shows, which they cast in Resin.

I've done work for The Franklin Mint and bronze trophies for Gladstone Driving and Fair Hill International among others.

Belden 3I sculpt all breeds and disciplines .

The Native American is my favorite subject.

My work ranges from all breeds, driving, reining, barrel racing, eventing and historical as well as portraits.

I just finished a Russian Trokia, and I am still working on The Trail of Tears.

These pieces took a lot of research.

I research all my work so it will be as correct as possible.

Each piece is a learning experience.

Belden 4I have had many horses, and I can watch them in their pasture from my work table.

There is nothing like a horse running at liberty or just taking a nice roll in the grass!
