JoAnn Peralta

A former illustrator, and now exclusively fine artist, painter, and author, JoAnn Peralta crossed over into fine art in 2004. Capturing Southwestern and historical figures such as Western cowboys and Native Americans, Peralta continues to explore the diverse and interesting facets of American life through her drawings and oil paintings. Her sales underwrite her ability to also pursue treatments to help people with various disease-related illnesses, and biologics to help heal or offset their symptoms.

Peralta attended ArtCenter College of Design in Pasadena, California, where she was awarded a full-time scholarship on entrance due to her portfolio. Since then, her work has been featured in such publications as Art Business NewsArt of the WestCowboys & Indians, Fine Art ConnoisseurInternational Artist, Southwest Art, Western Art & Architecture, and Western Art Collector, which has a feature article about her in its February 2022 issue.. 

Her work has been collected by many Fortune 500 and Forbes collectors, as well as dignitaries to presidents, entertainment industry personalities, and one of the largest landowner families on the Western American frontier. Her favorite story is when a farm worker came up to her during a show and said his family owned one of her early paintings. It depicted a worker picking grapes in the fields in California, which is how Peralta’s grandmother earned her living when she became an American.

In summer 2020, Spectrum News 1 interviewed her in her studio for a short online video highlighting her Western historical painting “Peace in the Valley” Treaty Between the Kitchens’ Ranch and Cochise, Tucson, 1873, which sold for $40,000 at the 2020 Masters of the American West Art Exhibition and Sale

Peralta has participated in Masters since 2010 and won the Artist’s Choice Award for her painting Spanish Shawl ll in 2019. She has had sold-out shows at the Small Works, Great Wonders show. Her first book, Math Face, received excellent reviews and is in the Library of Congress and in a special program for educational purposes that the Congressional Library requested. She has completed her documentary, Spanish Americans: The Fine Art of JoAnn Peralta, and her works can be found through social media on Instagram and Facebook as well as her website.

JoAnn Peralta is represented by InSight Gallery, Fredericksburg, Texas; J Sabry Fine Art, Beverly Hills, California; and Trailside Galleries–online.
