Born in Communist Poland, Joanna Pregon immigrated to the United States when she was 12. She and her family crossed national, cultural and linguistic borders as they negotiated their way to Germany before settling in Connecticut.
Pregon attended Pine Manor College in Massachusetts before her curiosity for the West and a growing desire to do creative work brought her to Arizona. While concluding her studies in graphic design, Pregon realized that painting was her true passion and calling. She has been expressing her creativity and unique vision through art ever since.
Since picking up a paintbrush in 1999, Pregon has shown with galleries throughout the country and sold her art to collectors throughout the globe.
Today she lives and paints in Phoenix, Arizona.
