Like many other well-known, successful fine artists, JoAnn Peralta started her professional art career as an illustrator. Her many years of commercial art taught her the fine skills and discipline that have made her a highly sought-after fine artist among collectors for the past thirteen years.
This is her eighth consecutive year as a Masters of the American West artist at the Autry Museum, and her third in the Small Works, Great Wonders show held annually at the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum in Oklahoma City. This will also be Peralta’s third year as an invited guest artist in the much anticipated American Miniatures show at Settlers West Galleries, Tucson, Arizona.
In 2015 Peralta was given the honor of being commissioned by Congressmember Steve Knight to do a painting that would represent his district in Simi Valley, California. Her painting Heart of the West now hangs in the Longworth Building on Capitol Hill, Washington, D.C.
Peralta is featured in the Jan/Feb. 2016 issue of Art of the West. She was also the subject of an article written by John Geraghty, the acclaimed collector of fine art and Special Advisor to the Autry’s Masters, in Western Art Collector’s Feb/Mar 2012 issue.
Peralta resides with her husband, Morgan Weistling, and daughters Brittany and Sienna. Brittany and Morgan are also Masters artists.
JoAnn Peralta is represented by InSight Gallery, Fredericksburg, Texas; and Trailside Galleries, Jackson, Wyoming, and Scottsdale, Arizona.
