Donna Bernstein is a contemporary equestrian artist, whose careful attention to the essence of the equine, coupled with a unique understanding of their anatomy and personality, creates art in a signature intuitive style.
Donna's natural inclination for horses appeared at a young age and with great sensitivity she watched the horses she could. "Horses have always been for me a source of healing, energy and life. I feel closely aligned with the ancient cave paintings; minimalist, primal, intimate. I have learned that it is not horses that I paint; I paint the way they make me feel”.
Donna Bernstein mixes mediums and materials in unique and uncommon ways, often using no brushes or tools to create her inked horses. She drips and directs proprietary mixtures of acrylics, water-based inks and pigments in alchemical spontaneity, her passion made visible.
Donna is now expanding the design of her paintings into equestrian fashion silk scarves, celebrating her work as wearable art.
Represented in West Palm Beach, Atlanta and the Hamptons she has appeared in numerous publications such as Phoenix Home & Gardens, Western Art & Architecture, American Art Collector, Horse & Style, EqLuxe and many others.
