There are four things in life that will change you. Love, music, art and loss. The first three will keep you wild and full of passion. May the last one make you brave. -Erin Van Vuren
I originally created Powers Perspective Designs to challenge people to look at things from a new perspective.
I paint large, bold paintings and turquoise horses for a reason. There is SOO much more to our lives than we even realize! Think bigger, ride the crazy horse, sign up for the race, and dammit, chase the scary dream.
"I don't believe we should play small with our lives so I don't paint small."
If you're looking for a large statement piece for your home or office, you have found the right place!
"I like fast horses, fast cars, wide open spaces, and road tripping like outlaws on the run and I have been endlessly trying to find a way to bring that life into your home."
Powers Perspective Design paintings are typically non-traditional, contemporary, western art with a modern rustic/ industrial style flare for that special edge. I use Modern Masters metal based acrylics for the earthy, rugged and aged look and then incorporate copper leafing to add flare and statement.

Want something with my style but custom to your home or office? Most of my work is commission based. Let's collaborate on something big and liven up your home or office. Send me a message along with any photos or ideas you have! I can change the colors to match your home. *** I do not do self-portraits *** I specialize in equine, and cattle, but will be open to whatever ideas you have.

There is peaceful, there is wild. I am both at the same time. -Sum
About the Artist
I didn't start off as an artist, it was just something I did to pass the time in class.
If you would have looked at my papers in class asking what I wanted to be, it would say a horse trainer, not an artist. My first love will always be horses.
I'm from the Texas Hill Country where I spent my younger years Barrel racing and on the road chasing the next rodeo. It was only when I decided to take a break from horses and got a corporate job traveling the nation where I fell in love with desert style and felt called to paint. Now I get to combine my love for travel, working for myself and my passion for horses and the rodeo world.
