A lifelong rider, Lois Stanfield grew up loving animals. If childhood holds the blueprint for one's destiny in life, then it was obvious what she would grow up to be. At the very young age of 4, she was already drawing pictures of horses and dogs on whatever media she could find, and selling them to a kindly neighbor woman down the street for a nickel or a glass of milk with a cookie or two.
She settled into the profession of Graphic Design early on in her adult life, and for a hobby photographed horses and landscapes. Eventually her love of photography and animals evolved to a full-time career photographing horses and pets. Always looking for artistic ways to work with her photographs, before long she began creating beautiful mixed-media paintings, and has won many international awards for her work.
Lois is available for commissioned portraits of horses and pets, and also works for her fellow photographers who may not have the time or inclination to paint but wish to offer paintings to their clients. She also offers many services to photo studios such as retouch, album design and studio branding.
Teaching the art of equine photography, Photoshop techniques, and Corel Painter for photographers has become a passion for Lois, and she is available for workshops, webinars and individual webex sessions.
