John T. Berry grew up with a passion for horses. After living in Wisconsin and southern California, Berry relocated to Taos, N.M., in 1987. Prior to pursuing a full-time art career, Berry trained and showed horses professionally for 16 years. He initially worked with hunter/jumpers before embracing dressage.
Berry’s art background includes human figure and portrait study in California with Jack Ragland and Edward Moore in the 1980, and in Taos with David Borenstein and Valori Fussell in the 1990s.
Berry began painting horses in 1996 and now he devotes himself entirely to equine subjects. This week’s cover is a 16″ x 20″ oil painting titled Summer’s Eve.
