Custom Horse Portraits

My mission is creating a portrait of your horse that captures the unique essence, character and soul of your equine friend. Whether it be the centrepiece of your home or purchased as a gift, the timeless treasure will captivate viewers as the horse’s life like presence is immortalised in a portrait.


My name is Marina Haycroft and I’m a Brisbane-based horse portrait artist. I have enjoyed all things equestrian and I have been drawing horses for as long as I can remember.

I love connecting with like-minded horse enthusiasts and creating unique artworks that capture the character of their horses. It’s so rewarding to see photos of my client’s commissioned artworks hanging proudly in their homes.

“Marina the portrait painting is STUNNING, I am so shocked, you made him look amazing, my boy. You are such a talent, I’m so happy with this. Thank you with all my heart, this is such a special gift, it truly means more to me than you probably realise. He has been such a wonderful part of our family for such a long time and you have definitely done him justice.”


“I received this beautiful artwork from my now husband, it is absolutely stunning and perfectly resembles both horses. My old mare (the bay) passed away only a couple months ago and this is the most special gift I could have ever hoped to receive. Thank you so much. I couldn’t love it any more! I cried when I opened it, it’s so special and something I will cherish forever.”
