kathlee art 4At the age of six, her family moved to a small horse farm right outside of Kennett Square where she discovered her love for horses after watching children take lessons at the barn her parents rented out.

Once she hopped in the saddle, she was hooked and has been riding and competing ever since.

Today, she works as an equine and portrait photographer, capturing invaluable moments between horse and rider, parents, children, and friends.

Although her love for equine photography will always prevail, she feels as though there are endless moments to be captured with the camera and does not want to limit herself to one genre.

Kathlee art 1“Having grown up around horses and interacting with them on a daily basis, I understand the unique bond people can form with these animals and hope to capture that in my images," said Kathleen.

Lini Westland Stevens' artistic subjects are many and varied

She continued to study with her father, Pieter Westland, an accomplished artist in his own right.

That is what made them masters, and I continue to study in hopes of learning from their inspiration.
