JoAnne Meeker is an oil painter who divides her time between Dubois, Wyoming and Tucson, Arizona. After attending the University of Kansas, School of Fine Art, The Kansas City Art Institute, and the Art Institute of Southern California, she started her career as an Illustrator, Art Director and and a few years later, Agency Owner.
Her transition back into the fine arts was as a painter and fine art photographer. Her cutting - edge photography broke new ground, capturing the western lifestyle, with the "eye of a painter". Her award winning photographs are in corporate and personal collections around the world.
Now a full-time oil painter, JoAnne's work is full of contemporary color and a painterly style. In her most recent series THE WRANGLERS, she portrays the character and lifestyle of the men and women who work on today's modern ranches. "When I begin painting the details, I can hear their stories."
