  1. A pet portrait of your horse or dog in a large size of about 22”x 18”.

Catherine Sharpley – Initially I like to meet the subject/animal in order to get to know him, discuss what you want and take some photos.  I will then go back to my studio and start a charcoal study.  I will then return to the subject and complete the portrait from life which usually takes from between 3 – 5 hours.   I can make portraits of animals if there are only photos. It is nice to have as many as possible, in order to try to catch the character and true colour.

About Catherine Sharpley  – Artist

I am an English artist living and working in Stroud, Gloucestershire, UK. I work in pastels and in oils, generally drawing and painting horses and family pets but also other subjects, including landscapes and portraits.

I’m lucky to follow a long line of artists (some of national distinction) on both sides of my family. Sir Martin Archer Shee was president of the Royal Academy at the end of the 18th century, whilst my paternal grandfather, Reginald Sharpley left many poignant sketches of the countryside around the Western front of World War 1.

I went to Florence to study with the famous Signorina Simi, supporting myself as a pavement artist when funds were short. Horses have always been a major part of my life, so on my return home my familiarity with the North Cotswold Hunt and its pony club meant that I had a ready-made source of subjects. I started to paint local hunters & eventers, gun dogs and family pets.

  1. Day on the Gallops with Olly Murphy with Breakfast for 4 people!

Olly – The team at Warren Chase Stables have had a fantastic first season exceeding all targets set by ourselves since our first runner last July.

I feel like I have been back home for a lifetime but in reality, it was only May 1st 2017 that I returned home to set out on my new venture of training racehorses, having spent 4 fantastic years working for an incredible man in Gordon Elliott.

I am continuing the upgrade of the yard and facilities throughout the summer and have a lovely string of young horses for the winter.
