Early in Anne’s career, she was commissioned to paint leading 2yo filly Pass the Peace for her breeder and Lammtarra (a former Derby winner and European Racehorse of the Year). More recently, Anne was commissioned to paint multiple Group-winning filly Lucky Kristale for her owners.

As well as working for racehorse owners, trainers, jockeys, breeders & bloodstock agents, Anne is often asked to paint portraits of beloved family companions, such as Rummy (below), and many a faithful hound!
