JoAnne Meeker is an oil painter who divides her time between Dubois, Wyoming and Tucson, Arizona. She began her training as a painter at the age of 11 in Destin, FL. 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 in advertising as an Illustrator, Art Director and a few years later, Agency Owner.
In 2001 she made her first transition back into the arts as a fine art photographer. For 15 years, her cutting-edge photography broke new ground, capturing the western lifestyle, with the “eye of a painter”.
Now a full-time oil painter, she is combining a modern, impressionistic approach with a contemporary flare as she portrays the beauty of common objects and captures the character of people, wildlife, livestock and landscapes.
