Joan Frimberger, born and raised in Fresno, California, has always been a little horse crazy. Her childhood was spent either on a horse, drawing one or dreaming about them.
At every stage of life, Joan’s passion for creating and drawing has been a constant companion. In 2011 she pulled out the starter-set of acrylic paints received as a birthday present, and it was love at first stroke!
Joan has devoted countless hours to refining her technique. Her work quickly found its way into private collections, local galleries and national shows, including a painting in the permanent collection of the AKC Museum of the Dog.
The innate need to create, to evoke emotion and to form a connection between the viewer and the subject sets Joan's work apart. The brush strokes, the colors layered upon each other create a depth and warmth pulling the viewer in.
Joan and her husband, Dominic, settled their family in Oklahoma in 2004, where they have raised their two children and own a 90-acre ranch with dogs, cats, horses, cattle, donkeys, sheep and chickens.
