Nichola Eddery, daughter of 11-times champion Flat jockey Pat, is putting on her first solo exhibition of 25 equestrian paintings (Osborne Studio Gallery, London, 18 June-15 July).
“Horses are my love — I was brought up on them,” said Nichola, 30.
“I think growing up with horses helps you see them differently. Depicting the anatomy comes more easily.”
Nichola’s work, which includes commissions of super-sire Sadler’s Wells and 2005 Derby winner Motivator, has been collected by, among others, the Saudi royal family.
Prices start at around £1,000 for a sketch.
