Horse Racing Paintings by Equestrian Artist
About The Artist

Harvey Mayson was born in Eastbourne, East Sussex and studied Fine Art at Liverpool for his B. A. Degree. His keen interest in horse racing began with sketching at the big Chester May meeting during his student years and he has developed as an equestrian artist, living in the Newmarket area for a year painting and photographing racehorses before moving to his present home in Dumfries and Galloway in 2004.

In recent years his commissioned subjects include Dancing Brave, Desert Orchid, Best Mate, Istabraq, Shergar, One Man, Red Rum and Moscow Flyer. He has exhibited in Sussex and the North West of England and in 2007 held his first exhibition in Scotland. During his time in Scotland he has broadened his portfolio to include working horses and trotters, inspired by the local Bladnoch Trot and Agricultural shows.

Harvey can work in a wide variety of styles and media ranging from his detailed pencil drawings and oil paintings to his watercolours and original caricatures. You can contact him directly to discuss your requirements by email at or telephone 01988 700801.

He writes for a number of specialist sports sites both at home and abroad including football, horse racing and sports betting sites.
