September Gallery Featuring – Joan Frimberger Fine Art

"An Artist's Diverse Approach To Ranch Life & Equine Art"

Joan Frimberger, born and raised in Fresno, California, has always been a little crazy – horse crazy, that is. Her childhood was spent either on a horse, drawing one, or dreaming about them.

No matter what stage of life she has been in - student, wife, or mother – Joan's passion for creating has been a constant companion. In 2011 she pulled out the starter set of acrylic paints that she had received as a birthday present the year before. It was love at first stroke!

Although Joan has only been painting on canvas since 2011, she has devoted countless hours to perfecting her technique. This passion has not gone unrecognized. Her work quickly found its way into private collections, local galleries, national shows and magazines: Fine Art Connoisseur, Chronicle of the Horse, AQHA Hall of Fame and Museum's Art Show and Sale, American Academy of Equine Artists Annual Show, Edmond Fine Arts Institute, Oklahoma Art Guild, The Artist's Magazine's Annual Art Competition and the list keeps growing.

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 brush strokes, the colors layered upon each other, that create a depth and warmth which pulls the viewer in to look deeper, to see more and, perhaps, to feel more.

Joan and her husband, Dominic, settled their family in Oklahoma in 2004 where they have raised their children and own a 90 acre ranch with dogs, cats, horses, cattle, donkeys, sheep and chickens.
