JoAnna Poehlmann

Year inducted: 2015
1932-

JoAnna Poehlmann started her art career in Milwaukee where she created fashion illustrations for various department stores and designs for greeting card companies while working on her own fine art. By the 1970s, she focused exclusively on a fine art career. For Poehlmann, drawing with scientific accuracy expresses her respect and love for her subjects. Her art is a rare combination of superb draftsmanship, meticulous observation, droll humor, and effusive joy. It is infused with a deep appreciation of art, literature, and the natural world. Poehlmann's pieces are housed in collections both public and private across the world.
