What is in a name, anyway...
Remigton was my original muse. It was this photo of him, taken at a Three Day Event in Florida, that began my watercolor journey.
Remilee & Co Design.
How does an online boutique specializing in captivating equestrian art become named RemiLee?
Here is my story:
Sweet Remington was my constant companion, my soul dog. A beautiful English Pointer who went everywhere with me and was my faithful trail riding companion for an untold number of miles. Like most horse people, dogs hold a highly significant place in my heart and life.
It was many years after I lost him, that I began to paint. He was the perfect model, so handsome and regal.
When I started this business, I wanted a name that was very much like him. Elegant, beautiful, and a complete original.
And so I chose to blend his name and mine.
Remi from Remington and Lee from the second half of my name, Nancylee.
Of course, I could not leave out my equine heart horses and muses! They are my joy and the inspiration for so much of my work, and so they became the “& Co.” They inspire my soul.
As I painted more and more, I found that original equestrian designs were lacking in availability. There is no limit to the mass-produced ho-hum products at all. I began to create designs for myself. Friends commented “Ooohhh, I love that!” frequently and began to request products for themselves. And so, this is how the business of RemiLee & Co evolved. Our roots are deeply embedded in a passion for horses, and all things equestrian, with a mission toward reflecting your own equestrian journey.
