BreyerWest is excited to be hosting Christine Jordan, the artist behind some of our favorite Halloween decorator models!
Christine will be hosting the Decorator Pinto Patterns workshop on Saturday, February 25th, and if you haven’t registered for it, there are still a couple of spots left! You can register here! In her workshop, Christine will show you how to choose which type of pinto pattern to use when you pick a theme and how to incorporate that theme into a pinto pattern. Attendees will go from sketches on paper to transferring their ideas onto a model!
In her own words, “I have loved horses for as long as I can remember and have been collecting Breyers for decades now. I have always enjoyed drawing horses, and for a while I had a whole series of horses with patterns that were made up of different things, so it should come as no surprise that I fell in love with the original Halloween horses designed with cleverly concealed images in patterns.” This inspired her to create some of her own fun Halloween designs!
Christine created the designs for Salem, Ratsputin, Eeek!, and Tabithain the Freedom Series and for Apparitionin Traditional Scale. Each of these spooky models is decorated with cleverly concealed shapes hidden amongst their various pinto pattern types – can you see them all?
Salem - 2019
Ratsputin - 2020
Eek! - 2021|
Tabitha - 2022|
Apparition - 2020, Traditional Scale|
In addition to designing patterns for spooky Halloween models, Christine is also skilled in the creation of flat art and digital art, as well as painting model horses in both realistic and fantasy colors. Because her day job is training horses, she doesn’t have as much time to dedicate to art she would like.
At BreyerWest Christine will have examples of the Breyer models she has created as well as the initial sketch concepts for some of them. In addition, she hopes to have some other examples of her paintwork and art and she is looking forward to chatting with BreyerWest fans.
