Studio of visual artist, educator and horse lover, Dyanna is an artist that likes to make connections with country, in particular landscapes and the natural world of flora and fauna.  Her compositions often celebrate the intricate relationships of colours, textures and patterns in nature through the media of photography or painting.

The farm stocks a small select band of broodmares, foals that are reared with patience and are grown into yearlings for sale or racing each year.   The undulated limestone paddocks provide a superb outlook for breeding and raising quality Standardbred horses.

As an educator and lifelong learner, Dyanna is passionate about helping others reach their potential and coordinates the PDA Services site, which is aimed at providing resources to support personal organisation and leadership development.  Dyanna has another site Standardbredbydesign for those interested in learning about the Standardbred.
