Frederique Horton Art
Welcome to my website!
Hi, and thank you for visiting! I have lived in South Wales, UK, for the past 40 years. I was born in Paris where I grew up and studied English at university. I came to Wales to continue my studies - and stayed, raising my family and teaching French. I am now a self-taught full-time coloured pencil artist, a medium I discovered by chance and which has become my passion.
I specialise in animal photo-realism, with emphasis on fine detail and creating lifelike portraits. My work has been featured in the American artist Ann Kullberg's "Color" magazine, and regularly in the monthly Pencil Box art gallery.
If you want a drawing of your pet or any wildlife, please click on the Commissions tab above, and I will be delighted to discuss it with you.
Welcome to my artroom
Here is where I spend most of my time with my faithful assistant Charlie (pictured above), in our peaceful mountainside cottage, surrounded by trees and a great inspiration for everything wildlife.
