The World Equestrian Games part 1 ~ Kimry Jelen

The next two post’s are going to be on  equine artists who have been invited to show their work at theGalerie du cheval at The World Equestrian Games in France! The World Equestrian Games will be held from 23rd of August to the 7th of September.

I’ll start with American artist Kimry Jelen~

For 16 days her exhibit space will be one of the gallery walls, 9 feet high and 16 feet wide. She used Kickstarter to help her fund raise for expenses of traveling and shipping costs. She had calendars ,note cards, original paintings and workshops offered to the donors. Here is a little bit about Kimry and her beautiful paintings!!

Lives In: Sisters, Oregon , USA

Central Oregon is home for professional horse trainer and artist, Kimry Jelen. She demonstrates an intimate understanding of her subjects. Her contemporary style flows freely from abstract to representational. She uses playful perspectives and surprising colors to express passion in her art. “My art is an opportunity to share with others what nature shares with me.

Kimry Jelen at one of her art show openingsEvery creation is a celebration of life, whether an aspen grove, the power of horses, or an animal’s sense of humor! I receive so much joy from interpreting my love of nature with paint, brush and palette knife.”Kimry’s art is also influenced by the places she has lived and traveled. She worked for ranches in the Rocky Mountains of Montana and New Mexico. She’s walked with primates on safari in Africa and rode horses in the classical arenas of Portugal and Spain. Inspiration from these places can be seen in her use of space, unique texture and remarkable color combinations. This native Oregonian’s work has found its way into private collections across the United States and the continents she’s visited.
“Moment in time”
