'As a one man wolf pack, i enjoy the comradery between everyone here. I think many of us work alone, for sanity & the safety of others too lol, so having somewhere to vent, share ideas & even have a laugh is cool.'
 

Tony O' Connor, artist, Ireland

It's so beautiful to see different artists help each other grow and work together on the same challenge. There is a place for everyone because art is free and love for horses is wide. I finally feel like a part of something bigger in this equine art world.'

Paard Verzameld Collective

Artist networking community 


Paard Verzameld Collective was founded in 2016 to connect and bring together equine artists all over the world. An art collective for professional and semi professional equine artists, who want to inspire and be inspired. An artistic hub to nurture creative thoughts and let go of the rules that apply. 

 

Around 100+ featured equine artists from around the world are joined together in the Paard Verzameld Collective. Whether you work as a fine artist, an illustrator, a photographer, a ceramist or potter, a sculptor, a printmaker, a digital artist or in mixed media, we all have the same common goal, to be inspired and to grow!

'Inspiring, innovative & independent'

As a member you start with a trial period of a month  to see if we are a good match. You also get assigned a buddy, to help you on your way. After the first month, we require you to become a patron member.  What that means you can read below. 

'Being part of the collective and being a patron member is such a great privilege for me. I feel like I have achieved a milestone in my art career for having successfully being admitted to the collective. The collective has contributed greatly to my growth as an artist over the last few years 

 

The challenges do just that, challenge me to grow, explore new techniques and attempt things I would not necessarily on my own

 

All of this with professional encouragement, support and mentoring.'

 

It doesn’t get any better!
