About this artist
Caroline Mercier, was born in 1981 in Toulouse, France. As a complete and self-taught artist in her horse paintings, Caroline Mercier is also a renowed nature and landscape photographer. «The horse accompagnies me since early childhood. Due to the impossibility to ride them before the age of 11, I started to draw them.
As much as nature they are essential to my life as much as the air I breath. They help me to think free when I feel oppressed and allow me to go back into the deepest of myself. “Horse” is a Master who teaches me simplicity, and who creates space to emotions returning to the essential. This is the way they live into me.»
The original oil paintings of Caroline Mercier are characterized by a living realism. Although figurative the details are applied on a fluid way giving a alive impression full of movement to the viewer.
