Persis C. Weirs

Persis Weirs was born on an island off the Maine coast. She enjoyed summers on the island and spent winters along the Maine coast where wildlife flourished. Persis had no formal training in art, but rather she developed her skills through close observation of the animals and wildlife around her home. She began painting horses seriously at age 23 and was soon commissioned to paint portraits of champion show horses and race horses. Hew work is displayed at numerous shows throughout the United States including the Western and Wildlife Art Show in Minneapolis, and the Waterfowl Festival in Easton. Visit to see more images
