Artist Bio

A still life, portrait, and western landscape painter, Joni Falk is a resident of Phoenix, Arizona, and is known for her crisp, realistic, and lushly colored artwork.

She was born in Chicago, Illinois, and her mother died when Joni was 2 1/2 years old, at which time her father's sister began caring for her, a brother and two sisters, one younger and one older. Her father and her Aunt Angie encouraged her artistic interest at an early age.

Joni was an English major at Marquette College in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. After college, she lived in Chicago, Helena, Mt. and Seattle, where she worked for an advertising agency.

Many of her still lifes are of Indian pottery, an interest aroused some years ago by an article in "Arizona Highways." She travels frequently to Indian pueblos and reservations where she also gets subject matter for her landscapes.
