About dlysons

With a passion for horses, I strive to always capture their beautiful power in my artwork. For as long as I can remember it seems I've had a pencil in hand in ready to realize my inspirations and visions on sketch paper. First and foremost I will always be an equine artist, but I do have a love for nature, wild animals, and domestic animals alike! My mom always said I should be a vet! As much as that may have appealed to me when I was young, instead I followed my wayward soul to wherever it led me, and finally I realize I never had to search in the first place. It was always there, waiting under the surface. I am an artist. Now into the future I will always seek to improve myself as an artist, and draw my passions. It is my hope that others will see the passion, the beauty and the spirit in my work and wish to have a piece of it in their home or place of business.
