Internationally acclaimed equestrian artist, Judi Kent Pyrah's natural artistic talent was nurtured since childhood.
At 17 she began painting portraits ,dogs and horses for a living and cherished a dream of a life painting and working with horses.
Judi's work has been exhibited and published in Canada and America for many years and more recently in the UK, with over fifty published works featuring mostly equestrian and canine subjects.
She has traveled extensively, providing her with in depth knowledge and experience in all aspects of equestrianism and wildlife which proves to be an endless source of inspiration for her art.
Judi is an all round accomplished equestrienne and BHSAI and over the last 10 years established a successful Arabian show and breeding stud with her partner Alan M Hunt in the beautiful National Park Area of North Yorkshire.
In 2009 the stud was downsized and now Judi is concentrating more on her art work while enjoying a more relaxed and peaceful life in beautiful France.
Originals and prints and commissioned pieces can still be purchased and ordered through their UK Agent Zachary Mendelsohn, who is based in London and via telephone or the internet with Judi personally.

Judi works from a combination of life drawings, her own photographs and the client's own photograph .However she can work from just the client's own photos, especially if the subject is unavailable or if the painting is to be a surprise gift!
Subjects can be arranged together in a neutral, specific or favourite background and cosmetic or specific alterations can be made to enhance the finished portrait and create the most memorable and aesthetically pleasing image for posterity.
Her favourite media are Oils & Acrylics painted on masonite. This allows for a much faster and more robust finished painting can be cut to any size: from 6 x 6 in to a maximum of 8 x 4 ft.
Her technique using acrylics imitates the richness and depth of colour typically associated with oils but without the drying time and sensitivity to heat and atmosphere some oils on canvas or board can be prone to. Judi also enjoys working in various other media ie: pastel, watercolour, pencil or mixed medium. and used to teach Painting Portraits in Pastels.
Completion time will vary with size and content but a straightforward portrait would normally be ready in a month of receiving the required reference.
