Lynn Rougeau, Westwold British Columbia Member Since November 2010 Artist Statement The Baroque breeds have become a passion and a specialty of Lynn's equine photography. Lynn provides original images to a variety of clientele and has garnered both recognition and a loyal following of collectors. Her works are represented in private and public collections throughout Canada , the United States and overseas. Over the years, her passionate pursuit in capturing not only the physical beauty of her equine subjects but their spiritual essence as well has gifted her followers with an intimate and moving look into the mystical nature of the horse. Lynn's photographs have been published in many of the horse world's leading publications as well as in a variety of advertising and promotional venues for both corporate and private clients. Lynn first discovered the romantic breeds of horses through the breathtaking images of Robert Vavra, and while her exquisite photographs convey a similar mystique, she has developed a style quite distinctly her own. Her love affair with classical horses began with Cody, a half-Lipizzaner who magically appeared in her life when she most needed him, not long after the devastating loss of her only child, Jeremy. Cody wasn't even supposed to be for sale; he appeared in the background of a sale video of several other horses. Lynn made the 1200 mile trek from her home in Canada to California to meet the horse of her dreams. He turned out to be everything she was looking for and more. The chance to ride his sire, Maestoso II Sabrina , confirmed what she already suspected- she had found something truly special. While at the breeding farm where she purchased Cody, she had an experience which changed her professional life as well. Lynn had the opportunity to photograph art in motion- Baroque horses at play. The images she captured there changed the way she envisioned and photographed horses.
