EquiisAutisticSavantArtist/Welsh and Welsh Crossbred Pony Breeding Farm


I am an adult person with high functioning autism and savant abilities who is interested in advancing the interests, opportunities, and understanding of adults with autism. I never had professional artist training giving rise to my abilities to create my magnificent artwork, but simply the savant ability to create it. To see Autism diagnosis, go to Documents link. 

To see where it all started, go to Where It All Began. To view some more of my savant artwork throughout my lifetime, go to Savant Art Gallery. To learn more about people with autism and savant abilities, go to the Links page.

Featured below is my quill pen and ink entitled "Dinosaurs," a piece I sketched in 1980 at age 24.

ALL orders require a 40 % deposit before work can begin.

It can take Mary four weeks or more to complete a customized horse, pony, or other animal portrait working on it non-stop many hours per day until it is properly finished. Because of this extraordinary autistic savant time commitment and the savant attention to detail, we must ask for a 40 % deposit on all orders before work may begin.   

No portraits will be delivered until payment in full together with shipping charges has been made and clears. If you order, but do not pay for the portrait in full, we reserve the right to re-sell the art piece to another buyer or maintain it in the collection.

Mary has been creating customized horse, pony, and other animal portraits since she was age 16 for numerous horse show customers and community members in her locale, and her customers have given feedback how delighted they were with her custom-ordered art pieces.
