Born abroad to an adventure loving family, Meagan Abra Blessing spent her formative years as a competitive figure skater and equestrienne. Summers were spent packing on horseback, working in various western states from Alaska to Colorado. Attending college with majors in Equestrian Studies and Vocal Performance, Blessing spent nearly twenty years teaching music and horsemanship, training and showing horses, raising a family, and performing on occasion. In 2002, Meagan made the transition from performing arts to visual arts. She found her love of the West and her knowledge of the equine form inspired much of her works.
Blessing has developed works in both equestrian and wildlife. “To me, these wild creatures made up the societal structure of the wilderness I was inhabiting at the time.” Meagan’s love for all things equine, is evident in her lively, expressive paintings. She has shown in several national exhibitions and is a member of AWA, NOAP, and the American Academy of Equine Art. Meagan has also been featured in major art publications of the West: Western Art & Architecture, Big Sky Journal, Western Art Collector and Southwest Art.
