Renowned Contemporary London Based Artist Caroline Towning: Bringing Art To Life

Caroline Towning has built up an enviable reputation as an equine artist, receiving commissions from celebrities, art collectors, and Saudi royalty. Edward Enninful, Editor-in-Chief of British Vogue exclaims; “Your artwork is amazing! Ru & I love it!” Caroline’s paintings depict realistic yet stylised horses, in to which she passionately breathes character, life, and emotion.  

Caroline grew up in Yorkshire surrounded by horses. From the tender age of four, she could often be found drawing her mother’s horses. Her professional creative career moved into the realms of animation and design before becoming the creative director and curator of a private members club in London’s Soho. Caroline then returned to her true calling in life; becoming a painter.

Caroline’s connection with horses has never faded and gives her paintings a true sense of authenticity. Now based in London, Caroline specialises in equine portraiture in a multitude of disciplines; including horse racing, polo, show jumping and dressage. Her large-scale oil on canvas works depicts each intricate detail of the superb specimens she paints – bone structure and muscles, every ripple and individual hair.

Caroline’s attention to detail results in an astonishing realism, balanced with an expressive character within each canvas, with the animals appearing present and alive. Talking about her art Caroline explains; “Each canvas captures a moment in time; a movement, a reaction and an expressed emotion, bringing the animals to life.”

Caroline has traveled the world to discover, study and observe the most superior and magnificent creatures to paint. As well as oil, Caroline is an accomplished artist in pencil and watercolour – studies in these mediums are often an important part of her painterly process. 

Creating her own series’ as well as juggling commissions, Caroline has also found time to create a limited edition range of premium gift products. The range includes exclusive velvet cushions, tote bags, and mugs. With a limited run on each, Caroline ensures each gift is not only exclusive but also only available for a limited time.
