In Pursuit of Perfection

28/08/2017 by Alex Mullarky

“I challenge you to do a painting a day.”

Yvette Frahn had been working part-time as an equine artist for some time when her friend set the challenge to her - to create one new work a day. 

Yvette was momentarily at a loss - where would she get the inspiration to create such a long stream of new pieces? 

Then she was struck by a realisation. She had the source material out in the back paddock - her mare, Tooky, and on her desk, a towering stack of photographs she had already taken of her. 

Over the next few months, Yvette created over 60 artistic works in ink depicting Tooky. She was astonished when the pieces began selling across Australia and overseas.
