JoAnn Peralta has captivated collectors with her keen sense of mood and lush brush-work. Each painting invokes a timeless romantic flair towards life and sets a tone of intrigue through her use of lighting and color. The beauty of light with a contemporary, modernist touch is what Peralta describes as her inspiration. As well, her passion for the West, historical and romanticized, dominates her vision and scope and it is clearly influenced by her Hispanic and Italian ancestry. She notes,"I produce many works which demonstrate sometimes subtle, yet notable ways in which Latinos have contributed to the fabric of western society."

Peralta's early training came via an opportunity to attend the illustrious Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California on a full-time scholarship. Shortly after leaving the Art Center, she began a successful career as an illustrator and naturally drifted into fine art.
