Today we highlight a talented artist whose dream of selling at BreyerFest is becoming a reality this year! We are excited to welcome all of our first time artists and veterans in the Artisans’ Gallery for the online celebration of BreyerFest: Horse of a Different Color, coming up in just a few short weeks!
Meet: Morriah Voogd of Equine Art by Morriah
Residing in the Big Sky State of Montana, Morriah grew up being known by her classmates as the “crazy horse girl.” Although she does not know where her passion for horses came from - she did not grow up around horses - she is glad she has a strong affinity towards these magnificent animals. At the age 12, Morriah had the opportunity to work on a horse ranch and her addiction was solidified! Through an old hand-me-down Just About Horses magazine, Morriah learned about BreyerFest and attended the event for her first time in 2015. This will be her first time selling at BreyerFest, which has been a dream of hers.
Aside from being head over heals for horses, she was always quite creative with her models while growing up. She made halters out of hair ties and made tiny blankets with her mom. After reading an article on customizing in a JAH magazine, she decided to try pastels. She was hooked after her first custom (as bad as it was, she says) and was determined to learn more and perfect her techniques!
After working with pastels she wanted to further her work and transitioned to airbrushing and painting. After years of troubleshooting and experimenting, Morriah has perfected her techniques. She loves embracing soft tones in her work and tries to use aesthetically-pleasing techniques throughout everything she does. Morriah strives to capture the natural rough, yet delicate, beauty of horses in her work. She loves that every artist in this hobby has a different style, which makes the art they create that more exciting and unique!
Morriah is excited to showcase her work in the Artisans’ Gallery in just a few short weeks. Though she normally only does commissioned work, she is working on some special sales pieces just for BreyerFest guests and can’t wait to share her work with Breyer fans!
