There is just one week to go before BreyerFest unofficially begins next Thursday evening with the Breakables and CYAN awards presentations, and we still have so much more information coming your way on the BreyerFest Blog! Check back later this afternoon for an announcement about our partnership with Horse Country!
For now, let’s meet an artist who is a BreyerFest staple!
Meet – Karen Zorn!
Karen has been attending BreyerFest since 2005 and began selling at BreyerFest in 2008. While she didn’t formally enter the model horse hobby until 2004 (which she discovered on the internet), she has had Breyer models since she was 5 years old.
From Michigan, this talented artist loves the model horse hobby because it blends her two passions of horses and art. When she saw her first custom and resin horses, she knew that creating her own was the direction she wanted to take with her work, and she hasn’t looked back. While her focus is finish work and customization, she also loves photography. Karen is inspired by the work of other artists in the hobby, as well, and thrives on being challenged artistically. She loves learning new techniques and solving artistic problems.
In addition to her own art, Karen also gets other artists involved in the hobby through NaMoPaiMo, National Model Horse Painting Month, which encourages model horse artists to challenge themselves artistically amongst their model horse loving peers. She also photo shows and looks forward to being able to return to live showing and judging.
This summer at BreyerFest, in addition to her informative Pinto & Appaloosa Painting 101 workshop, which will be available on-demand all weekend long to VIP and All-Access ticket holders, Karen will also be a part of this summer’s BreyerFest Artisans’ Gallery - which is open to ALL ticket holders! She is most excited to be showcasing her lineup of micro minis. If you can’t wait until BreyerFest to see Karen’s work, you can check it out here!
We’ll see you right back on the BreyerFest Blog this afternoon!
