Drawings by Denise
Fine Detailed Western Art
A young girl named Denise spent much of her childhood sketching animals, entertaining her cousins with her clown reproductions and using Charles Shultz's characters to decorate bookmarks and coloring books.
Today, a few decades later, she's finally releasing her talent to the world. Her adult drawings are now primarily pencil sketches and pastel drawings, and rather than reproducing someone else's art, she creates original works of the things she loves the most. Her love of all things equestrian is the second thing in her life that remains since her childhood, and her fine detailed drawings reflect that passion.
Take a moment to look at the drawings we'll put on this page, and then visit a couple of the other pages that feature and sell her personal creations. You may be amazed at the detail you see below, but we'll bet you end up sharing it with someone you know who loves animals and family. Plus, visit her website to see how you can get a custom drawing from your photo!
Love You Grandpa
Featuring her father and her neice
This may be my favorite of all of Denise's art. The primary character in this portrait is my uncle, Denise's father, and he was indeed a character! He loved to laugh and play, he loved his family and he loved Jesus Christ. Those of us who knew Uncle Harry will tell you this pencil sketch makes you feel as though he's back here with us. Denise has captured his smile exactly as we remember, and the detail in his eyes allows you to see the beauty that lived in his heart. A gift for her mother, this sketch has brought more tears of love to the eyes of my family than any other!
Congress and World Champion Stallion
Lazy Loper is owned by Pine View Farm in Northern Ohio. Denise showed her own pleasure horse out of Pine View until the mare was forced in retirement and broodmare status. Lazy Loper is Denise's most sought after piece right now. This famous show horse is sire to more than 21 Champions as well as Denise's mare's own baby.
