Born in London in 1991, Josie later attended the prestigious fashion school Instituto Marangoni and was offered an internship at British luxury fashion house, Alexander McQueen. Having creative flair and a passion for horses since a child, Josie decided to focus her attention on creating paintings, particularly horse portrait commissions.
“Horses have not only inspired me but have taught me so many lessons that cross over in to my art. The sensitivity, skill, patience and passion are all things that I have learnt from the horses and in turn are reflected in my art”
Having also studied for an equine science degree, Josie has a deep understanding of the anatomical features of her subjects. Combining this knowledge with her creative ability, Josie skilfully creates atmospheric, sensitive and very fluid representations of horses, often in motion.
We are excited to introduce Josie Appleby, a young, up and coming equine artist to the gallery.
