Though she is relatively new to the artist side of the hobby scene, this next painter has a knack for bringing to life some teeny, tiny models.
Meet – Alexandra Absher of Sprindrift House Studios.
Though she raises black Clydesdales in real life, and says when it comes to real horses “the bigger, the better”, when it comes to her artwork, she favors “teensies.”
These micro-miniature model horses may be tiny, but they are packed with details. While she’s gotten into painting these itty bitty cuties only recently, she’s always been artistic and finds her work unfailingly has an equine theme.
Originally from Alaska, Alexandra now calls California home and hopes to one day make it to an in-person BreyerFest. She’s been collecting Breyer models since she was two years old, and though she longer has the first model she ever received (it may have met an untimely demise; we aren’t really sure), she retains most of her additional collection from childhood and has enjoyed watching it expand over the years.
With BreyerFest hosted virtually, she says, she’s able to finally attend – in 2020 she was lucky enough to be drawn for a raffle model, which really made the whole weekend for her. This year, she’s pleased to be participating in the Artisans’ Gallery and looking forward to offering her “teensies” to fans. In the meantime, you can find her work here!
