Mirelle Vegers

28 February 1975

Mirelle Vegers beeldend professioneel kunstenaar

I am, what you might call, a creative spirit. As a young girl, I was already drawing and painting. The natural talent and self-taught. I graduated as a graphic designer. In 2003 I continued my career as an independent freelance graphic designer. It enabled me to give substance to my art again. With the arrival of my son in 2011, I radically changed my core business from owning a graphic design agency to creating equine art. I followed my dream and I am now a professional artist. I have my own studio in Wijchen. At this moment my work can be seen in England, amongst others. My dream of having my own studio at home will be realized this year.

 

My expertise

As a little girl, I already had a deep passion for horses. If I saw or even heard horses, my heart would skip a beat. And it still does. I have always expressed my admiration and passion for horses through my drawings and paintings.
I am able to connect with their consciousness in a certain way. I call that working from 'the connection within'. It is my way of creating a link with their soul and capturing its true essence on canvas, paper or panel. So you, as the viewer, will really experience and feel the subject and their story.
