Cotswolds based equine artist Melanie Wright is known for her portrayal of equine and landscape subjects and her talent for capturing atmosphere, action, speed and quality of light.  Along with a keen eye for true representation, she brings a highly individual vision to her paintings and drawings.    

Her work is inspired both by her Cotswold surroundings and her love of landscape and equestrian events, and her paintings move from the gentle beauty of the Cotswold Hills to the thrill, action and atmosphere of polo and racing events.   

Working in oils, pastels and watercolour, Melanie also paints portraits to commission.  She shows her paintings and drawings at galleries throughout the United Kingdom and examples of her work can also be found in private collections in Europe, Japan and the United States.

Melanie studied portraiture and life painting to postgraduate level at Heatherley's School of Fine Art in London, and History of Art, with an emphasis on Modern British Painting, at Christie's Education.
