Meagan Blessing spent her formative years hiking and camping in the backcountry wilderness, packing on horseback, and living and working in various western states from Alaska to Colorado. These experiences gave her a deep appreciation of, and respect for, the wildlife she observed, as well as the many horses she has had the pleasure of partnering with in her exploratory endeavors.
Today Meagan’s love of the wide open spaces and wild inhabitants of the West informs her paintings.
Blessing’s paintings feature wildlife subjects rendered in a contemporary realist style with abstract influences. Utilizing color, light, and design, Meagan personifies her animal subjects with a sense of wonder and a modern aesthetic that is continually evolving.
Her artwork has been shown in national exhibitions, including: The Russell: Exhibition and Sale to Benefit the C.M. Russell Museum; The Russell: Art in Action, Great Falls, MT; The Mountain Oyster Club Art Show & Sale in Tucson, AZ; Out West Art Show & Sale, Great Falls, MT; Cheyenne Frontier Days Western Art Show, Cheyenne, WY; America’s Horse In Art Exhibition: AQHA Museum, Amarillo, TX.
