2012 Official Canadian Supreme Art by Paige Albrecht
“The Supreme Horse ”
The Canadian Supreme welcomes the artistry of Paige Albrecht. From a small home near Trochu, Alberta, Paige builds on her collection of work one experience at a time.
Inspired by the landscape of the endless prairies, Paige brings life to her one passion – the western lifestyle. Transferred through the simplicity of pencil, the depth and texture of each image is meticulously drawn to enhance each element – a concho, belt buckle, the mane of a horse or the intricate architecture of a well worn saddle – the western lifestyle comes to life through the eyes of Paige Albrecht.
Over the years, Paige Albrecht has participated in the Canadian Supreme as a reining competitor, a buyer at the western horse sale and as an exhibitor in the Western Lifestyle Marketplace. Her work is gaining popularity across North America.
Today, Paige celebrates the progression of a finished show horse, from the breeding program to a started prospect, finishing with a competitive horse. Paige’s art has been inspired for many years by the trained cutter, cow horse, or reiner. In her eyes they represent the ultimate horse – “The Supreme Horse”.
