12 Days Of Equine Artists: Day 10-Shelly Presley!

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. Day ten’s feature artist is Shelly Presley!

Oklahoma, USA


Born and raised in Oklahoma, horses are a big part of my life. I have been showing and riding Quarter Horses on and off since I was a child.


I am fortunate enough to be able to still show horses with my sisters and their families. I have donated my commissions to support the AQHA and currently am a board member who loves seeing all my horse show friends, my artwork helps support my horse show habit! I am a self taught artist for the most part, my idol growing up was the
great Oklahoma Equine Artist-Orren Mixer. I also do portraits of dogs, cats and even a giraffe! You can see my art on my Facebook page.


I have a series called “Lunchbreak Art” that I post while working full time and have worked as an Ophthalmic Assistant for the same Surgeon for the
last 29 years, have raised two wonderful children and have a beautiful grandson.
