Louise Jarvis’ passion for horses is deep rooted. Having learnt to ride at a young age she never dreamed of anything other than owning a pony. She would sit and draw horses day after day dreaming of the horse she would one day own

Louise studied Illustration and Printmaking at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design in Dundee, Scotland and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in 2006

Although only graduating in 2006 Louise has been commissioned to draw many animals since this time and her studies and passion for horses has led her to work passionately on her collection of Equine artworks including ‘Firstlight’, ‘Legion’, ‘Arclight’ and ‘Fragments’ as well as many private commissions

Louise’s Equine studies and drawings are drawn in pastels and are inspired by light and the relationship between light and form. The subtle hint at a shadow or the way light dances across the subject leads us to understand and get a real feeling of empathy for her subjects. Louise works in a sensitive but powerful way ensuring spectators get a feel for the power of these magnificent animals

Her work also includes commissions of other types of animals. She is capable of capturing the animal’s character and soul and this lends her ability to draw animals of every shape and size

Louise spends her days with her family and two Golden Retrievers in Perthshire, Scotland. She gains recognition through local, UK and International commissions. Portraits drawn by Louise hang in many homes across the UK as well as further afield places such as Canada, USA, Spain and France
