Brenda Bruckner

 
Colome, South Dakota

Artist's Statement

Brenda Bruckner grew up in a large family on a South Dakota wheat farm and even as a small child had a love affair with horses. She was drawing them long before she was able to own or even ride one.  Horses have always been her inspiration to draw and paint.  As Brenda grew older and both her artistic and horsemanship skills grew, she specialized and found her favorite subjects were working cowhorses.  She draws and paints them in their 'everyday clothes' in quiet ranch scenes with realism and authenticity.  Her toughest critics are the 'old cowboys' who know a good horse and appreciate how she portrays them. 

Brenda studied commercial art for a short time but is primarily self taught.  She loves detail and precision so has found colored pencil to be her medium of choice although has works in graphite, oil and acrylic as well.  She and her husband own and operate a cattle ranch in southern South Dakota so her favorite subject matter is always at hand .  Bruckner is a self-professed 'home body' and spends most of her time at her studio on the ranch or helping put up hay and working cattle with her husband.

"A photograph just preserves an animal's image…. it is the artist that shows you its soul and makes you part of it. "
