Trish Stevenson


Growing up in a rural area west of Denver, Trish Stevenson was either riding horses or drawing them and even then, considered herself an artist. Now living in Montana, she has been inspired to paint the people, animals, and action of the West, focusing on capturing their spirit and attitude in her oil or pastel paintings.

She credits her grandfather for the Western flavor of her work, as he was a memorable character; a tall tale telling, former bronc rider in his heyday, who took the kids to hot, dusty rodeos and brandings. Those memories left a strong impression on Trish and still influence what she paints today.

After graduating high school, Trish was exploring the art galleries of Sausalito, California and was moved to a decision to apply for art school. She entered the Colorado Institute of Art, intent on a career in graphic design. She took advantage of a two-month study trip to Europe, soaking up everything the museums had to offer and spending a month taking classes in Florence, Italy. Her eyes were opened to the possibilities of fine art, which has become a lifelong passion. Trish’s artwork has been featured in Art of the West, Western Horseman Magazine and Art Horse Magazine’s International Equine Art Competition. She has participated in many national and regional exhibits and her work has toured several museums as part of the Ken Ratner Western Art Collection.
