America's Horse in Art Artists' Biographies
Joan Frimberger has always been a little crazy … horse crazy, that is. However, since starting up a small ranch in Oklahoma, that passion has expanded to include a whole assortment of animals who model for her paintings.
At every stage of her life, Joan’s passion for creating and drawing has been a constant companion. In 2011 she pulled out the acrylic paints she had received as a birthday present the year before. It was love at first stroke!
Joan has devoted countless hours to refining her technique. This passion has not gone unrecognized. Her work quickly found its way into private collections, local galleries and national shows.
It is the innate need to create, to evoke emotion and to form a connection between the viewer and the subject that sets Joan's work apart. While striving to be technically correct, it is the colors layered upon each other that create a depth and warmth, pulling the viewer in to look deeper, see more, feel more and, hopefully, to smile more.
