Elizabeth Laurel Zuspann Wiley

Elizabeth Wiley was born in Abilene, TX, where she learned to ride dressage. She studied Fine Art at The University of Texas at Arlington. She now lives in Dallas and works full time as an equestrian artist.

“My style is loose and free. There are graphic elements with playful layers of paint. I want to capture the gracefulness of dressage and the communication between horse and rider. I simplify the image and often leave areas unpainted or left out.  My paintings are time capsules, capturing the emotion of the moment in each painting. I hope that my work inspires love for horses and expresses the elegance of theses wonderful beings.” 

Her work has been featured in Crate & Barrel catalogues and in articles in Horse and Style Magazine,The Chronicle of the Horse Magazine, Heels Down Magazine, EtsyDallas, Maryland Equestrian, and Paard Verzameld.

Elizabeth, who attributes her mom for the love of horses, is now passing that love onto her two children who are now taking dressage lessons.
