Self-taught in both digital and traditional mediums, Augusta Hammock has been portraying horses since childhood. She was introduced to her favorite breed, the Straight Egyptian Arabian, as a teenager when her family purchased its first horse, an Egyptian-sired gelding named Valentino.
“All horses have power and beauty, but the Arabian has been my greatest source of inspiration. His history, his spirit, everything about him lends itself to art. I can only try to capture what my eyes see and soul feels in his presence… A fantastic challenge that has become one of my defining lifelong goals!"
Augusta’s artistic pursuits are the counterpart to her daytime occupation as a web developer. She has found a way to creatively balance and mix her love of technology and love of horses, as she is also widely known for her visionary equine logo designs.
