Deborah is an associate member of the Society of Equestrian Artists, and has been running a ‘Snow Horse’ competition on the society’s Facebook page since the bad weather struck.

“We cater for artists of all ages and abilities and with so many people stuck at home it seemed like a fun activity for our members to take part in and to help build our growing online community,” said Deborah.

From a personal point of view, this gives me an opportunity to work on a much larger scale than I would normally, and of course the materials are free.”

Deborah moved to the area last year and is looking forward to taking in part in this year’s Marlborough Open Studio event with painter and printmaker Rosemary Farrer.
