My name is Anja!
I started collecting model horses at the age of seven. Over the years I assembled a quite large collection of Schleich-horses and of course my beloved Barbie-Horse 'Lucky'.
I stopped painting when I started Vet-School... becoming a Vet is a hard thing to do...
But in 2010 I decided that my poor old models don't deserve to be forgotten in a cardboard box. I started researching what to do with them, and found the art of model horse-customizing.
Over the last years I tried many different techniques... pastels, acrylics, oils, pencils and airbrush.
I still use all of them, depending on the color I want to paint.
My speciality is mohair! I love haired horses and I'm happy to take commissions for it!
Since I have a Borzoi (Russian wolfhound) I got many requests from friends to paint dog-figurines too.
So stay tuned and follow my Facebook page, Instagram or Pinterest!
