“MY OBJECTIVE IS TO CAPTURE THE PERSONALITY OF A HORSE IN A PAINTING, NOT JUST A MOMENT.”
For all your equestrian art needs, look no further than Steffie Hornig Art. Every commission is a unique project with the aim of a painting that does true justice to the horse in focus. The process involves getting to know the horse as good as possible, preferably through a personal meeting and/or the exchange of photos and videos. Steffie will talk with owners about the personality of their horse, and will start by doing sketches and come up with a composition. Throughout the whole process Steffie will keep you in the loop to make sure the painting will meet your expectations! Commissions are done in professional acrylics on fine art canvas and framed. The size can be chosen according to your requirements.
