Visit an Accomplished Western Artist in the Tetons of Wyoming

I talked to Joanne Hennes the other day. We had a visitor in the Works of Wyoming Gallery who wanted to know more about her technique so I gave her a call. Joanne lives in a beautiful area near Teton National Park and shared details of her life in art. What a life it is! It is full of joy and passion, you can just tell when she speaks to you. She is an extraordinarily accomplished artist and businesswoman, and a vibrant personality. She started out in theater and scenic art. I could definitely see how that experience led to the grand scale of the scenes she paints of the Tetons and the surrounding Wyoming landscape. She spends a lot of time out in nature. She loves music and has sung with a choir. She enjoys visiting about a wide range of subjects. Their studio is open to the public. Next time you’re near the Tetons go visit the studio, and have a wonderful time.
