Yesterday we introduced you to a long-time BreyerFest artist, but today we are pleased to introduce you to an artist who is a part of this summer’s Gallery for the first time.
Meet – Harriet Lansley of Walnut Lane Studio.
Joining us from the UK, Harriet has followed BreyerFest for many years and is please that this summer’s virtual format allows her to participate in the Artisans’ Gallery from across the pond. She is thrilled to be connecting with fans and participating in BreyerFest and is so excited to be sharing her work with such an amazing community. Funny enough, she first hear about BreyerFest in 2012 when that year’s theme was British Invasion.
Growing up, Harriet loved horses, riding, and helping out at local stables. She’s always loved drawing horses, but when she found out she could transition into customizing model horses, the whole game changed for her. A degree in model design taught her many skills that she still uses in her work today, from 3-D printing, to molding and casting, to prepping, sculpting, painting, and repairs. She’s even collected a few students under her wing that she has started giving regular lessons to!
Inspired both by the countryside where she lives and the camaraderie of the model horse community, she comments that if she’s ever lacking creatively, she just takes a quick stroll – either outside or through Instagram – and is always reminded of what’s possible with art.
Harriet loves to give each pony she creates loads of character and can’t wait to share her creations this summer with BreyerFest guests. She’s been developing a range of models and resins that she can’t wait to re-home! You can find Harriet listed as Walnut Lane Studio during BreyerFest weekend in the Artisans’ Gallery, or you can find her work here!
