Jean Richardson at Mirada Fine Art

Jean Richardson is now at Mirada Fine Art, and we are absolutely thrilled to have her paintings grace our walls!

An image of the horse is what artist Jean Richardson believes to be the perfect vehicle to express the true subject of her work—the unbridled motion, energy and indomitable spirit of humans.

Born and raised in Oklahoma, an admiration for the strength and beauty of her equine friends was almost inevitable.  Entranced by the mythological aura of the horse throughout history, as well as the real-life beauty of the magnificent animals, Ms. Richardson has always felt they encapsulated the oft restless, sometimes heroic, efforts of their two-legged counterparts.

Armed with a Bachelors of Fine Art degree from Wesleyan College, Jean strengthened her technical abilities with the Art Students League in New York.  Having mastered painterly skills, she went on to develop her own distinctive style.  Frequently working in very large formats, loose brushstrokes combine with ridges of palette knife color, bringing to life the simultaneously resolute and passionate spirit of her pieces.  Almost hidden within this kaleidoscopic energy, the expressionist beauty of horses develops, prancing stomping and leaping across her canvasses.

Throughout several decades, Jean Richardson’s work has become a mainstay of both public and private collections.  She is frequently featured in museums, design academies and national art publications throughout the United States.  Mirada Fine Art is the only gallery in Colorado to represent her incredible work!
