Lorna Lancaster ASEA


My interests in art and design were established in childhood. My father’s profession as an architect and my mother’s talent for oil painting were major influences for me. After leaving school, I studied window display and art history, and some graphic design. I qualified as a Window Dresser and continued to paint as a hobby, painting people, still life and animals for many years until it eventually became my career.

As a child and teenager, I spent many weekends helping out at the local riding school and horses became my passion. The first thing I did when I started work was to save up to buy my own horse.

Owning horses in the past has given me a greater insight and knowledge of their anatomy and conformation. Having been involved in competition dressage, I understand the importance of engagement, outline and forwardness which gives a horse its character and gracefulness which inspires me to paint them. I am regularly commissioned to paint horse and dog portraits.

I have exhibited and sold in various art shops and local exhibitions. I have sold work online overseas as far afield as the US, Australia and Canada.

Past exhibitions include:

The Society of Equestrian Artist’s Annual Horse in Art Exhibition 2022, Sally Mitchell’s Gallery, Tuxford

The Society of Equestrian Artist’s Member’s exhibition 2022 at The Granary Gallery, Weston Park
