Joanne Mehl

United States

Joanne Mehl is an accomplished figurative artist best known for her commissioned portraiture, figure painting, and equestrian subjects. While having a vivid impressionist feel, her work is grounded in the realistic depiction of relationships and scenes. Over thirty years of disciplined oil painting skills imbue her pieces with a depth of color, and her keen eye for composition brings dynamism to even the humblest scene. Joanne's forte is depicting the intricacies of human and animal subjects; both in terms of their anatomy, and interrelationships. Her artwork hangs in many venues, from the Kentucky's Governor's mansion to numerous private collections.


Joanne graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts with Honors in Illustration from

Pasadena's Art Center College of Design in 1983, and teaches at Portland's Oregon Society of Artists. For more information please visit
