I am Myfanwy Powell, a multi-talented artist skilled in several artistic mediums. I am a member of the Society of Equestrian Artists and have loved painting and drawing since an early age; especially horses. It’s a huge bonus to sell my work and bring people joy, particularly when it’s their own animal.
I specialise in equine portraits using acrylic or oil paint, however, I have begun to expand my range of work such as painting commissions of dogs and I am therefore open to commissioned requests for any type of portrait.
I was born in Wales in 1996 and have always lived in Llangedwyn, a small village in Powys. I studied at Shrewsbury Junior and Senior High School and acquired a First Class (Hons) degree in BA Fine Art at Aberystwyth University. In 2017 I returned to Aberystwyth University to continue my Masters part time whilst continuing to live at home in Llangedwyn. My work experience includes working at Whitmore and Humphries Architects in Oswestry, 2012 and at the Osborne Studio Gallery in 2015. I have taken part in a life drawing course with equine artist Eva Dutton, pastel workshops with fellow animal portrait painter Mary Herbert in 2013, 2014 and 2015, an SEA workshop of drawing horses from life in Newmarket 2012 and an SEA workshop on Structure and Movement in Oxfordshire 2015. I have painted at local shows in the past and my work has reached local galleries and country stores. Galleries I have shown in include The Mall Galleries in London, Sally Mitchell’s Gallery ‘The Museum of the Horse’ in Tuxford, The Osborne Studio Gallery in Knightsbridge, London, The National Horseracing Museum in Newmarket and the Willow Gallery in Oswestry – where I currently work voluntarily once a week.
