Joan Fullerton Colorado Artist
My painting process is one of experimentation and discovery. While I do not work with a predetermined subject in mind, I often end up with paintings symbolic of man’s connection to the Earth.
With my life and with my art, my intention is to discover and maintain a bridge between form and the formless.  I make contemplative art, art originating from “deep awareness”, and alive with the mystery of being. It would please me if viewers found my work to be intriguing and uplifting.
Joan Fullerton grew up on the vast, slow-paced plains of Eastern Wyoming. While raising 3 children, she studied watercolor with Edgar Whitney, Frank Webb, Charles Reid and many other nationally known watercolorists.  In 1985 she returned to college and achieved BFA and MFA degrees in painting from the University of Wyoming.  She was a college art instructor at Laramie County Community College in Cheyenne, Wyoming from 1990 to 2003.  In 2003 she made the leap of faith to relocate and paint full-time in Taos, NM. During her 8 years in Taos, Fullerton made her mark and established her reputation as a well-known and respected artist and teacher. Now located in the Denver Metro area, she now paints in her home studio and teaches workshops internationally. .
