Laura Savoy Boyle – High Spirits Farm

Welcome to the studio of Laura Savoy Boyle.

You will see her passion for horses reflected in much of her work. She is recognized as a top equine artist, winning several awards over the years. Her work reflects a deep appreciation and connection to the horse as partner, teacher, healer.
You will also notice how versatile Laura is in media and subject matter. Pets, to landscapes, to historical places and things.
Lately Laura has turned some heads in her unique approach to using acrylic on watercolour paper. As an experienced watercolourist, she was looking for a solution in maintaining the softness and detail without losing intensity of colour.

High Spirits Farm in Pontypool is where Laura and her husband call home. A small century farmhouse cottage circa 1890s, animals, gardens and nature provide endless inspiration for new work. Her studio is open by appointment. Custom work always welcome.


Horses are Laura’s passion. She not only paints and carves these elegant beauties but rides and teaches riding skills as well. Visit her renovated ‘Studio in the Barn’ and see her excellent equine carvings, drawings and acrylic paintings.

   Since 1987, Laura has developed her work in a variety of subjects and media, but horses are her greatest inspiration. Over 20 years of experience in the horse community as a competitor, trainer, coach and owner, is reflected in her work in exquisite detail. As a versatile artist, she expresses the beauty of horses not only in graphite pencil and acrylic, but also now in wood. Her debut for her wooden horses at Buckhorn Fine Arts Festival this past summer was a great success with one winning its class, and a relief sculpture placing second in another. In a following competition three of her pieces all finished in the top 5. Laura plans to continue competing in carving shows and she hopes next year to move up into the intermediate division. “Entering competitions you learn ways of refining and developing your work when you place it against the work of your peers. Your work may be fantastic, but there is always room for learning and improving on what you are doing. I like competing in the carving shows, because not only are you being judged on objective criteria for the most part, but often the ones judging your work are top master carvers themselves.”
