FrameSource Artist Of The Month
Michelle Grant May 2013
A native Calgarian, Michelle Grant’s art is intricately connected to the spirit, economy, and beauty of the horse in Alberta, yet her excellence in art has been internationally recognized. This passion for art and horses shows through her artistic works in a variety of mediums, which has resulted in many awards for her pencil drawings, watercolors, and oils.
Her work has been published in many books, magazines and calendars. It is not limited to work on canvas or paper, but is also seen on coins issued by the Royal Canadian Mint, including the 2005 Alberta Centennial 25 cent coin and 2002 Calgary Stampede 50-cent collector coin. Also, one of her paintings was selected to be included in the 2009 Ducks Unlimited Canada National Art Portfolio.
Michelle has been featured on the award winning “Cowboy Country Television”, “Help TV” on Access Television and her paintings used as props on the CBC’s “Heartland” television series. Michelle and her work was also featured on an Access television program “Hidden Gems” that aired in 2009.
The consistent quality of her work has resulted in its’ collection by both private and corporate clients. At present, she continues to enjoy success working out of her home studio, teaching art classes part-time and riding her part bred Arabian mare, Champagne.
