ABOUT THE ARTIST


Twyla Wehnes was born and raised in Calgary where the Western heritage rubbed off on her. She has been in love with horses as long as she can remember. Fortunately, Twyla has been able to mix her love for horses with artistic talent that garnered her a scholarship in high school and led to three years as a painting major at the Alberta College of Art.

Twyla makes full use of the diverse community of horse enthusiasts in Calgary. She spends many hours collecting reference material for her artwork at venues that vary from the prestigous Spruce Meadows show jumping facility to rodeos, harness racing and miniature donkey exhibits. When Twyla captures an image she likes, her goal is to work up a piece of art that captures the personality and spirit of the subject.

Working in pencil, watercolor and oils, Twyla's work is done both for exhibit and on a commissioned basis. She won first place at the Royal Winter Fair in Toronto in the pen and ink division of the Canadian Association of Equine Artists and Supporters exhibit. Also, her works have been juried into such prestigous shows as the Calgary Exhibition and Stampede Western Art Auction and the Harness Tracks of America Art Competition in Lexington, Kentucky.
