For many equine nthusiasts, there’s nothing more beauti- ful than art depicting our favorite animal: the elegant, powerful and noble horse. Art- ist Donna Bernstein,
based in McCall, Idaho, and featured
throughout the world, is a talented
artist who manages to passionately
capture the spirit of the horse in each
of her creations.
Bernstein is continually inspired by
the spirit of horses and her love of the
animal. The vitality of the horse—and
the artist herself—is conveyed in
every painting, sculpture, and jewelry
piece she creates.
“Creating art is a bit of a bareback
ride,” she says. Looking at her work, the
viewer can see just what she means.
