Joanna Zeller Quentin
“Bold, Accurate and Colorful” are three words often used to describe Joanna Zeller Quentin’s vibrant and powerful equestrian artwork. Taking care to realistically depict the sporthorse in all forms, Ms. Quentin is especially known for her hunter/ jumper, dressage, and eventing pieces. Her work breaks the bounds of conventional equestrian artwork with daring color and energetic brushstrokes that perfectly capture the speed, grace, and energy of the competitive horse and rider. Growing up in Naperville, Illinois Joanna began drawing animals – especially horses - as soon as she could hold a pencil, and riding lessons soon followed. At the age of eleven, she completed her first “official” portrait of a friend’s horse. Today she continues her professional career as a painter, commission portrait artist, and fine art printer.
Her work has been exhibited in many prestigious venues including the International Museum of the Horse, Equis Art Gallery, The Arts Castle, The Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum, Louisiana State University’s School of Veterinary Medicine, the Arabian Horse National Futurity, and Cazenovia College, as well as other galleries and juried shows. She has been a featured artist for HITS (Horse Shows in the Sun) and Southbound Show Management, and she has been the official Cover Artist for HITS Thermal Winter Show Circuit Program Guide in 2012, 2014 and 2015. Her award winning artwork has been widely published in the Chronicle of the Horse, Southwest Art, Sidelines, Horseback Magazine, The Equine Image, and Horses in Art. Joanna is a Juried Member of the American Academy of Equine Art, the Institute of Equine Artists and the International Association of Scratchboard Artists.
Joanna is represented by the Equis Art Gallery (www.equisart.com) in Red Hook, New York and is the official artist for LOPE – Lone Star Outreach the Place Ex Racehorses (www.LOPETX.org). She is proud to partner with Two Socks Designs on a line of embroidery and screenprinted products, and Dover Saddlery stores nationwide carry her HoofPRINTS NoteCard sets.
She currently resides in Dallas, TX with her husband, three dogs, two cats, a parrot, and a Thoroughbred ex-racehorse turned jumper. In addition to maintaining a busy career as an artist and printer, she is also an accomplished violinist.
