Painting of Belle


Suzanne Wilson was born in Somerset, England in 1957. Her love of horses became apparent at a very early age. She was fortunate to own her own horses and when she wasn’t caring for them or riding them she would draw them.


Her love of drawing progressed to painting and she went on to formerly study art and later open her own gallery. She enjoyed great success and people from all over the UK and indeed the world have collected her work.


In 2004, together with her husband, she moved to France. Her location was the beautiful medieval city of Segur le Chateau in the Limousin region, situated within a few kilometres of the famous town of Arnac-Pompadour, the home of the Anglo-Arab. The Pompadour Chateau sits opposite it’s own internationally famous and immaculate racecourse. The Chateau also hosts many equine competitions, including showing, dressage, three-day eventing and show jumping at international levels. It is also famous for it’s Anglo-Arab breeding programmes.


Suzanne’s exploration of art in it’s many forms; through representational to abstract, from using single media to mixed medias has interestingly taken her full circle, and she is now concentrating on accurate representational equestrian art again. However her latest work shows a maturity and quality that can only come from a passion spanning many years and a continual quest for understanding.


After seven successful and very happy years in France Suzanne has returned to the UK and is now living in Somerset.
