A place where equine art is created with the highest level of quality in hand-painted oils for finish-work and, coming soon, equine sculptures with the same quality and attitude that has been the hallmark of my work, Stephanie Michaud, artist and owner of Studio Michaud.
Anyone can execute, few create. I create. Pushing the limits of what can and has been done in painting realistic equine sculptures. That's what I'm all about. My work is expressive, full of flavor and life, not contrived and hyper-controlled. In my experience, the most living paintings have more expression to them and I can marry that with realism. The real thing has life, I want my work to have life! I'll control how it come to be but I want it to come to be with life. Have no doubt- my work is very realistic! Realism with flair! There is more to a sculpture with sprit than what you can control with a brush. Time doens't equal excellence, experience with a lifetime and dedication to art that helped me excel in an art college does! That's where I come in and excel. That's my philosophy.
~~"You've got to find what you love and that is as true for work as it is for lovers. Your work is going to fill a large part of your life and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what what you do. If you haven't found it yet, keep looking and don't settle. As with all matters of the heart, you'll know when you've found it." -Steve Jobs
