Born abroad to an adventure loving family, Meagan Abra Blessing spent her formative years packing on horseback, living, and working in various western states from Alaska to Colorado. Today, her love of the West and her knowledge of the equine form in uences her choice of subject matter.
Ever mindful of the underlying structure and overarching character of her subjects when choosing her compositions, Meagan’s years of hands on experience with horses in various capacities have resulted in paintings that are reflective of individual equine temperaments and personalities.
Her renditions of horses are vibrant and dynamic, and her playful utilization of color and light brings a contemporary twist to classic and often quintessentially Western imagery.
Her work has been shown in several national exhibitions, including The Mountain Oyster Club Art Show & Sale, Tucson AZ, Out West Art Show & Sale, Great Falls MT, Cheyenne Frontier Days Western Art Show, Cheyenne WY, The Heart of the West, Coeur D’Alene ID, and Traveling the West Art Show & Sale, Dallas TX.
A member of the National Oil and Acrylic Painters Society, the American Women Artists, and the American Academy of Equine Art, Meagan has been featured in various publications, including Western Art & Architecture, Big Sky Journal, Western Art Collector, and Southwest Art.
