For the next 12 days starting on Christmas Day and ending on January 5th (the traditional “12 Days Of Christmas”) I will be featuring 12 equine artists. Over 80 artists entered in the contest to be featured on our Facebook group Art Of The Horse (which has over 3,700 members!). I used this handy tool to randomly pick 12 of the entrants to be featured on TFS. For day seven, let’s swim back across the pond and meet up with artist Michele Bourquin!
Horses and art have always been the two driving forces in my life. The art I came by honestly. Creativity runs in the family. The love of horses however…that is a family mystery!
I began riding at 8 and still continue to be active today showing hunters as well as dressage.
My husband and I live in Gilbert Arizona with 7 horses, 3 dogs, 3 cats and one volunteer chicken who officially belongs to the neighbor.
I work out of my home studio specializing in equine art in oils. Dogs, cats, random wild creatures and the occasional landscape also appear on my easel.
