Get to Know the Artist
Rayvin Maddock is raising the bar for equine sculpture. She speaks to the spirit of the horse by using her expertise in equine anatomy and biomechanics combined with exceptional composition and gesture. Filling each sculpture with the essence of the horse she knows so well and trying to speak through their forms. Each piece is a very personal study of an emotion, movement, breed or moment which shows the horse's beauty and soul in a new way. She caters to both private and corporate collections with low bronze edition numbers and exclusive releases as well as larger resin editions to suit every collectors needs.
Finding a special passion for the science behind realistic equine art, Rayvin is always furthering her knowledge. Attending many equine anatomy workshops, farrier courses and all sorts of continuing education around the horse's form and function, she strives to improve her knowledge every day to better her eye and her art. Seeking always to understand the horse better and their relationship with humans. Learning the dance that is horsemanship and spinning it into sculpture.
Rayvin was born in Calgary, Alberta, Canada and was raised loving horses and attending rodeos and western events. Her family was involved in breeding Appaloosa horses and ranching in northern Alberta which cultivated her love for these majestic creatures.
My sculptures are created from a oil based clay original which is then cast into either bronze or resin. In the artistic spirit, I love sharing how I create my sculptures. I personally find the creative process of other artists fascinating and enjoy seeing their choices of materials, tools, references and techniques.
I have an open policy of sharing here in the studio and my blog and Facebook have many followers which share and learn from eachother.
For those interested in the process here are some of the materials and references that I use in my studio to create my art.
