Joni Monroe Beinborn
Joni Monroe Beinborn spends countless hours painting commissioned horse portraits. When her easel clears she can't wait to concentrate on her favorite subject, the cowboy's horse. These works, featuring American Quarter Horses being used in everyday life are her passion. She is currently working on a very huge, secret commission of a very famous Quarter Horse. "I can’t wait to let this cat out of the bag!" says Beinborn.
This year Joni was chosen by AQHA to be the 2017 Signature Artist and in 2014 was given the Steel Dust Award, both in conjunction with the America's Horse in Art Show and Sale. "To be recognized by AQHA for doing what I love is beyond belief", she says. "I am so grateful to them for promoting equine art and all these astounding artists. Thank you AQHA!!"
