Collette Hoefkens Equestrian and Wildlife Artist. Traditional studies and Neoromantic. Oil, watercolour and pencil and charcoal.


Born 1967, Hertfordshire, England.

I was fortunate to have received a good grounding education from the wonderful tuition of Brian Fleming and Tony Chisholm, previous of Hatfield School, Hertfordshire.

After further studies with the Hertfordshire College of Art and Design I began to find my own way. I have been much guided and influenced by my admiration for the old masters such as Landseer, Stubbs, and Waterhouse and more recently by contemporary favorites JamesLlynch and Jonathan Pointer.

Bound to the desire to create, I draw immense inspiration from the fellow artists that I exhibit and liaise with, including Anne Songhurst, Flora Mclachlan, Morna Rhys and Phil Greenwood.

Much of my love for open countryside must be attributed to Pepper, Scrumpy and Bollinger....
