Lavender Woodman


I am proud to come from a family of artists-whether their

medium be words, instruments or paint, and I'm glad they

gave me the confidence and support to forge my own path.

I studied at the School of Art at the University of

Manitoba, and now paint from my home studio in a

small town near Riding Mountain National Park- a

source of endless inspiration. 

I moved around a lot as a child, but I spent the bulk

of my teenage years on my grandma's rural Manitoba

farm, living out a dream of owning, riding and

competing horses. I spent those years studying their

phsyiology, behaviour and quirks, and now I can put that

knowledge into my work, making my pieces intimately

familiar for those who know and love these animals. I

explore different themes in my personal pieces, but I always

seem to come back to equine art. 

In my commissioned work, I aim to capture as much of my subjects

character in one image as possible, whether that subject be a horse, dog,

family member, or even a car! I will work with you closely to ensure that

I am able to send you a precious memory that you and your family can treasure

for generations. I work in watercolour or oil paint, to suit different tastes, styles and budget!

My original pieces explore beauty and detail in nature. I love to get up close to find unique perspective, and experiment with colour, texture and dimension to suit the modern home. I aim to blend traditional portraiture with contemporary tastes.  I am now dedicating more time to illustration, and I'm looking for high quality, sustainable products to feature them!



 Please don't hesitate to contact me even if you only have the smallest spark of an idea!

I look forward to hearing from you!
