Many of her equine commissions come from friends she’s made exercising horses with Rocky Fork Headley Hunt (Ohio). Mercier works in oil, pastel or pencil—and said she’d get a lot more accomplished if she weren’t always rescuing stray animals!

This week’s cover, Eclipse, Enjoying His Winter, is a 24″ x 30″ oil on linen. Mercier resides in Columbus, Ohio.
