JoAnn Peralta, b. 1967, California, United States
JoAnn Peralta is a professional, fine artist and author, whom has just released her first book titled, Math face; a memoir. It chronicles the events and subsequent success found when she made the connection that her appreciation of math, and science related topics could propel her fine art to the success it has become today. Through charts and descriptive experiences Peralta explains the thinking involved to make the leap from analytic thought to masterful drawings and paintings. "It all begins with boundaries and plumb lines of truths, which help pave the way for creative expression”, says Peralta. This is what science and math have discovered and she wants to bring the same understanding and light to this in the fine art world. Art History is covered as well, which is one of her passions.
Peralta studied at the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California where she was awarded a full-time scholarship. Thereafter, Peralta found success for many years as a professional illustrator and subsequently, a highly sought after fine artist. She shows at The Autry Masters of the American West Exhibition and Sale, in California, held at the Autry Museum of the American West, as well as the Small Works, Great Wonders Show, held at the National Cowboy and Western Museum, in Oklahoma, amongst others.
Her work was a feature in the December 2012 issue of Western Art Collector Magazine, written by presidential advisor to the Autry Masters, John J. Geraghty. Peralta also had a feature article written by notable writer, Vicki Stavig, in Art of the West Magazine, Jan./Feb. 2016 issue. Her work has also appeared in publications such as International Art Magazine, Art Business News, International Artist, Southwest Art, Western Art & Architecture, Fine Art Connoisseur, Art of the West, and an upcoming feature in Cowboys & Indians Magazine
