Working from her studio in Pittsfield, Massachusetts, Janet Crawford depicts the equestrian lifestyle. Hunters/Jumpers, Saddlebreds, Hackney ponies and Morgans are frequent subjects of the artist. Dogs are also a favorite subject of the artist, and she has painted many breeds.
After completing a bachelor of Fine Arts at Rhode Island College in 1991, the artist began a professional career in the portraiture of horses. Crawford's work has been featured on the covers of publications such as "The Chronicle of the Horse", "The Pedlar", and "The Morgan Horse". The prestigious Hampton Classic Horse Show selected Janet's work for their 25th anniversary poster in 2000. Her portraits of horses and dogs hang in private collections in the United States, Canada and Europe. There is a line if note cards and reproductions available featuring many of the popular images.
Janet Crawford is an avid Hackney pony enthusiast, competing each year at such shows as Devon, the Royal Winter Fair and Louisville. She recently designed a Hackney pony carousel horse that will be part of the Berkshire Carousel upon it's opening in 2013.
Ms. Crawford's art will be featured on the HSV 2012 Omnibus cover, t-shirts and promotional products during the season. For more information on Horse Show Ventures visit www.horseshowventures.com
