Fine Art Of the Equine


Amelia Landes Murdock was born in 1987 in Provo, Utah. She started drawing at a young age and showed a great talent and love for it. She also grew up with a deep love for horses.  She trained and showed in the equestrian field through her teenage years. She bought un-broke horses, trained them and resold them to happy homes.  This is how she paid entire way through college and her art education.  She was admitted to Brigham Young University early and studied in the Illustration program. She worked as an illustrator but soon realized her passion for realism in fine art. She continued her studies at The Water Street Atelier at The Grand Central Academy of Art for two years as the youngest student in attendance. There she studied with Jacob Collins, Scott Waddell, Tony Curanaj, Camie Davies, Dan Thompson, Travis Schlat and more. She moved to Los Angeles to continue her studies with Adrian Gottlieb, a renowned portrait artist, for another year. She has come full circle and decided the elegant equine she fell in love with as a child still enchants her. She shows the delicate bewitching quality of the horse and it's landscape through her artwork. She now lives in Chicago with her husband and two daughters.
