“I have always been passionate about horses - drawing, painting and riding them,” explains Nicky Leigh. “I decided to immerse myself in the theme of horses for my next exhibition. My intention is to express the elegance and exquisite beauty of the horse. The deep relationship between man and horse has also inspired me. Both practical and beautiful the horse is truly magnificent. I want this exhibition to express my very deep love and respect for God’s exquisite creation – The horse.”
