Meet the Artist



Drawing and Painting

“Susana Mingram's work focuses on empowering the female body through the symbiotic relationship of horses and women as the quest to find one’s power. The intensity of movement and clear gesture of the brushwork reflects the movement of her own body, intuition and familiarity with horse anatomy. Her work fights against the over-sexualization of the female body and patriarchal values to find her freedom and inspire other women to find their strength by expressing suppressed feelings and emotions.”
