Patricia Borum is an accomplished horsewoman and for the last 30 years a professional equestrian artist. As the daughter of an artist mother and US Army Colonel father living overseas in many countries, her classrooms were the museums, churches, art galleries, palaces and castles of Europe and the Middle East. Horses have been in her life from an early age. Patricia has trained and shown her own horses and ponies into advanced levels of jumping, eventing and dressage.
In her studio in Northern California outside of Sacramento she has created a delightful variety of horse depictions in a variety of mediums: Oil paintings, Giclee prints, silk equestrian scarves, bronze sculpture including monumental outdoor statues and classical fountains are featured.
Discriminating collectors and urban developers have sought after her classical and realistic bronze sculptures. Two of the larger-than-life sized bronze horse sculptures are in Southern California; both are focal points in the cities of Rancho Mirage and La Quinta.
Her graphic style oil paintings form a compelling body of work that is strongly stylized. These paintings are inspired by classical bas reliefs, Persian painted miniatures, and early 20th century constructivist forms. With dramatic colors and forms she captures the playful essence of the noble horse reflected in their life-like eyes.
Her latest medium is a collection of equestrian silk scarves, designs created from her original oil paintings. The multitude of vibrant color combinations give options for every wardrobe.
In the near future she hopes to adventure into creating equestrian jewelry, handbags and porcelain dinner wear.
Custom commissions are welcome.
