"Present day; Together we can face the dangers. Together we can fend ourselves from the powers that be. We shall prevail." The image interacts with the substrate by removed and scratched defined parts in tone of the metal. The metal is visible in a certain angle of light.

Dutch born Mirelle Vegers (1975) is a creative spirit and self taught artist with a fascination for horses. Best described as a vibrant hurricane of creative energy! Mirelle’s drive and passion for her art can be felt in every brush stroke of her work. Her knowledge about her subjects, years of experience and pleasant and open way of communicating is appreciated by her clients, with some coming back for it especially. Mirelle realized the ambition to make art her professional career a few years ago. In 2011, with the arrival of her son, she changed course and focused on the niche specialization of depicting horses. Convincing the viewer with a certain flair and elegance with each applied brushstroke. Mirelle gives her own contemporary signature touch to the tried and tested techniques of the ‘Old Masters’. Light and dark interplay, the use of paint and the smooth surfaces of her canvas can sometimes trick the viewer into thinking they are gazing at a real horse. Mirelle's starting point is not to paint photo-realistic, but with feeling and full understanding of her subject. Combining her professional training as a graphic designer to compose, using her painter's eye, talent and skill to create. Mirelle is an exhibiting artist, with work sold internationally. A long-standing member of the professional equine artist collective Paard Verzameld and is represented by its gallery. With exhibits in a gallery in the United Kingdom and art agents in the United Kingdom and the United States, Mirelle’s work can be found across the globe.
