Sneak peek: Tassel!


Meet Tassel, my new classic scale Friesian mare sculpture. She's the 'old fashioned', heavier type. Bouncing around, strutting her stuff. I can't wait to sculpt her wavy mane and tail. More pictures coming soon. ;)

Nikki's Mojo

Photos and finishwork by Nikki Button
This made my day. What a cutie! My new mini stock gelding Mojo, painted by Nikki Button to a lovely palomino overo. I just got these photos from Nikki, and she also informed me that he is a sales piece! :) You can find him here on MH$P. Unpainted Mojos are available here.

Easter eggs


Hope you are well, and I wish you all a very happy Easter! The little Lippizaners are designed by me and made with my new 3D printer, the eggs are made by a chicken and painted by me and my hubby. :)

Tired of painting eggs? Try painting a mini resin. I have some Mojo castings in stock for you here in the Netherlands, and MVS also ships them pretty fast. He will look good in any color.

Get your Mojo here.

I met Whistlejacket!


The enormous painting of Whistlejacket (George Stubbs, around 1762), is probably the most famous piece of realistic equine art ever made. The pose is clearly inspired by classical rider portraits, but Stubbs did everything he could to make the stallion look real. You can almost feel the tense muscles in his hindquarters and the soft skin around his armpits. Amazing. And this was achieved in a time when photography didn't exist! Scroll down to the last photo to see how...

He's huge! Much bigger than I expected, almost life sized.

Stubbs knew his dapple greys. So detailed!

Look at the grey mare! This man loved horses.

Stubbs dissected horses in his workshop, hence the stains on this preliminary sketch. His book on horse anatomy has been (and still is) a great source of information for equine artists.

Willem is back! New mane and tail, same cuddly drafter charm! Willem was originally released in a small run in 2015. To set the new Willem-Alexander apart from the European edition, he has some extra details and a fuller mane and tail.

Willem will be back


This time he is being molded and cast in by MVS in Tennessee. I've gotten several requests for unpainted copies of Willem recently, and because the original run was small and most of them were sold in Europe, I decided to release him again. Just one mold though, and I made him a little different from the original so you can tell them apart.

He hasn't got a beard, but looks royal enough to me, haha, so his name will be "Willem-Alexander". 

More info coming soon, when the first copies have been cast.

The Lolas are €119 each, shipping to anywhere in the world is included. Interested? Just send me an email.

Edit: the Lolas have been sold, thank you! I do have an unpainted Gabriel looking for a new home.
