John Fawcett Studio

An uncommonly talented artist working in watercolor and oil, John Fawcett has spent his life studying and gaining inspiration from his subjects.  His first hand knowledge of horses and dogs is evident in his detailed images which often focus on the relationships between animals and people.  "I want to make the viewer smell the horse, hear the hoof beats, and have all their senses be taken in by the painting."
