So he produces between 15 and 20 caricaturesper hour. “My aim is to create a true work of art. In this regard, speed is an asset; it has a freshness than cannot be obtained in any other way.” His gift caricatures are created in a wide range of media – oils, watercolour, pen and ink and digital.
Prices are determined by medium, size and complexity . Horn is also an accomplished portrait painter, with works in numerous public and private collections.
