Every time I send one of my works on a journey to its owners, I always find it difficult to say goodbye, because the work involves a lot of passion,
love and heart and soul. However, knowing that there is someone who is heartily happy about the portrait, that people are moved to tears,
the smiles on their faces, this feeling is why I love this job so much!
For my handcrafted animal portraits I use the highest quality materials that guarantee lightfastness and long durability, so that the works of art will last a lifetime and bring joy to their owners. name is Sabine Lackner, I am a passionate animal lover and international artist from Austria.
My mediums are pastels, colored pencils, and charcoal / graphite.
I am also the proud mummy of my daughter and my horse Rubina.
I’ve loved drawing since I was a child and I’ve always loved animals! Drawing and painting classes at school were my favorites! Whenever I could get my hands on a piece of paper and a pencil, I drew animals.
I started drawing realistic animal portraits around 2007. In the beginning my horse Rubina was my model most of the time and I started to create lifelike and more realistic portraits and to learn from them.
