Juror of Selection

Joan Fullerton grew up on the vast, slow-paced plains of Eastern Wyoming. While raising three 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 1990-2003. In 2003 she made the leap of faith to relocate and paint full-time in Taos, NM. During her eight years in Taos, Fullerton made her mark and established her reputation as a well-known and respected artist and teacher. Since her move to South Denver, she is now hosting workshops in her studio and teaching across the nation.
