When equestrian artist Huw Williams and his wife Jane moved to Scotland in the late 1990s, they were the first couple ever to appear on the hit television programme 'Location, Location, Location'. Huw had grown up in North Wales, studied for a Degree in Art Illustration at the University of Newcastle-upon-Tyne and lived in Leicester and Manchester, and the time felt right to retreat north of the border. They looked for, and found, a home where Huw could produce his stunning large scale oil paintings, Jane could run her equestrian business and their daughter could learn to ride.
Classically trained, but originally set on a career as a magazine-illustrator in England, Huw decided to go back to his first love, painting, at the same time as the family acquired their first thoroughbred. "Jane bought Mia in the early 1990s and I began sketching her straight away," Huw recalls. "Then, as friends saw my work around the place requests for other horse portraits started coming in and before long I found I was busy painting all day long".
Working in his huge old farm studio Huw has built up a serious reputation as one of our finest equestrian artists. His stylish and stylised compositions hold a unique place on the market and have sold to private and corporate collectors all over the UK.
