So much more than just, a horse
For her entire life, Eugenia has been connected to horses. They formed an ever present part of her childhood; gave her a career; some of her proudest moments; disappointments and one of her life’s passions. It was with great sadness that in 2007, Eugenia had to retire from competitive Eventing and all related Equestrian Sports. Owing to the acute onset of Myalgic encephalopathy or better known as M.E. or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. In 2010, Eugenia was able to make a near full recovery and attempted to get back in the saddle imbibing the spirit of equestrian competitors to “get back on”. Unfortunately, it would not be so.
In part consolation and mostly in triumph; the community of enthusiasts still embrace her but no longer as a fellow competitor but a peer who shares their appreciation for the fine animals at the centre of their world - horses. Eugenia returned as an astute and proficient EQUINE PORTRAITURE artist to begin carving out a new legacy that celebrates that which every equestrian holds most dear; their beloved companion and steed.
Eugenia has been reaching to find what lies at the end of her artistic talent. Her creative process is an extension of self and summed up in her life’s philosophy:
“Be kind, everyone is fighting a battle that you know nothing about. So add light where you can, be true to yourself and celebrate life whenever possible.”
