Author Kimberly Gatto licensed my portraits of father and son Triple Crown winners Gallant
Fox and Omaha for the color insert of this
excellent history of Belair Stud Farm. Belair Stud had a long and storied history as one of the
thoroughbred horse racing farms. Published by History Press, the proceeds from this book benefit
Stables Museum in Maryland. I was honored to be a part of this project!
Horse Show Program Cover Art & Invitations:
The directors of the annual Midnight Sun Charity Horse Show and Festival, a large and very popular gaited horse show in
Florida, licensed the use of my art featuring famous Tennessee Walking Horse stallion Midnight Sun in their advertising
and promotional materials.
The directors informed me that the designs were a big hit!
Business Logo for a Horse Farm:
I created this elaborate custom artwork for for a horse farm logo. It features a portrait of the clients' young daughter and
their favorite Paso Fino mare. In real life, the girl was physically unable to ride horses. Therefore, the composition
was entirely a product of my imagination working with the client's suggestions. I designed the art to look
striking on the horse farm entrance sign as well as on advertisements and T-shirts. This piece is just one of many art logos that
I have created for horse stables and other businesses.
The author of "Barbaro, Smarty Jones & Ruffian: The Peoples' Horses", Dr. Linda Hanna, licensed the use of four of my
paintings of famous racehorses as interior book illustrations. Hanna commissioned one of the portraits as well as a
composite piece which I created specifically for the
book. I worked closely with the author to ensure that the art met her needs and
The book, published by
Middle Atlantic Press, features introductions
by both the owner of famous racehorse Smarty Jones and the Governor of Pennsylvania. It has
been well received by the horse racing community.
Custom Christmas Cards:
A Texas based marketing company commissioned me to create art for the front of some special Christmas cards. Other than
giving general suggestions on theme, the clients entrusted me to design the cards in whichever way I chose.
The company makes annual holiday donations on
behalf of their customers to a therapeutic riding center, hence the subject matter. This center, which provides horse assisted
for the disabled, received a portion of the cards for their own use. The client and the riding center were
delighted with the art!
Book Cover Design & Interior Illustration:
I created the cover design for "Beyond Greatness: Four Thoroughbred Legends" by Charles Justice as well as all of
the interior artwork.
The author states that the design perfectly captures the intangible quality of "greatness" while relating to the
nature of the statistical
information and biblical references that he presents in the book. Mr. Justice licensed the use of several of my
Thoroughbred horse art
portraits for use in the book, including one that I created by request.
Custom Porcelain Collector Plates:
A client in England asked me to create custom horse art porcelain collector plates based on some original graphite/charcoal
portraits that she
had commissioned from me previously. I designed and oversaw the production of the fine plates which were rimmed with
real gold and complete with matching display stands. The client was
thrilled with the results!
Magazine Cover, Interior Art & Postage Stamps:
The esteemed magazine Australian Stamps Professional (ASP) licensed my paintings of famous Thoroughbred race horse
Phar Lap for use on the cover of this special issue as well as accompanying an interior
feature article about the Australian equine hero. In partnership with Australia Post, ASP also released two
versions of limited edition Australian
postage stamps featuring my Phar Lap horse art.
