Dorset based equine artist Jeff Liles has accompanied and supported his wife Julia for over 20 years at numerous Horse Driving Trials. While Julia drives their team of grey Welsh ponies, Jeff acts as groom, navigator, handyman, engineer, and in any other capacity required to keep the show on the road!
Since the early days when Jeff and Julia, training books in hand, began converting their children's outgrown Shetland Ponies into driving ponies, Jeff has penned cartoons of some of his more humorous observations of the art and etiquette of private and competitive carriage driving.
Some of Jeff's pen and ink cartoons are now available to buy as as a series of Greeting Cards. Each card is printed 7" x 5" size, with the inside left blank so that you can add your own personal message. Carriage drivers, supporters and fans alike will find something in this collection to remind them of the quirkier side of carriage driving. As time goes by more cartoons will be added to the gallery of cards. In the meantime please feel free to browse through the gallery and do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions whatsoever.
The Carriage Driving Collection has now been extended to include designs for Driving Trials and the Art of Driving Collection - where Jeff has a zany reworking of some of the most famous paintings by Old and Modern Masters.
