Suspicion by Christine M. Cancelli

Artist Christine M. Cancelli has had a long and varied career involving art and horses. She can remember drawing horses at an early age, copying drawings of Sam Savitt and Paul Brown. After spending time as a graphic artist, Cancelli decided to give up her day job in 1983 and paint horses for a living.

Cancelli’s subjects have included race horses, hunters, jumpers and steeplechasers, and she’s traveled extensively to major events in the United States and Europe.

Her bold painting style, use of light and subtle palette all lend themselves to the myriad emotions one feels while riding horses. Suspicion is a 24″ x 36″ oil on canvas of the Monmouth County (N.J.) Hounds.

Cancelli, a full member of the American Academy of Equine Art, resides in Howell, N.J., with her husband Roman Szolkowski, their son, Rider, and several horses.
