Joe Anna Arnett (American painter, 1950)


Nata a Jacksonville, una piccola città nelle lussureggianti foreste del Texas orientale, Joe Anna Arnett sapeva che sarebbe diventata un artista.
Si è laureata all'Università del Texas, conseguendo un Bachelor in Fine Arts, quindi si è trasferita a New York ed alla fine è diventata Senior Art Director per Young and Rubicam Advertising, lavorando su account come Merrill Lynch e People Magazine.
A New York, ha proseguito i suoi studi in belle arti alla Art Student's League. Nel 1984, Arnett si trasferì a Santa Fe, nel New Mexico.


Nel 1985, ha sposato l'artista James Asher ed insieme hanno iniziato la loro avventura di viaggi e pittura in tutto il mondo.
Negli ultimi 12 anni, Arnett ha condiviso il suo amore per la pittura e le tecniche che ha acquisito con dei studenti in seminari negli Stati Uniti, Canada, Italia, Francia ed Irlanda.
La sua citazione preferita sulla sua esperienza di insegnamento è "Niente è veramente tuo finché non lo dai via".
Lavorando in Plein Air o nel suo giardino, Arnett presenta i suoi soggetti con passione e rispetto per il Creatore degli originali. Joe Anna Arnett è rappresentata da Zaplin-Lampert Galery a Santa Fe, New Mexico.
