Joan Myers was born in 1944 in Des
Moines, Iowa, and had an early interest in the sciences and
mathematics. At Stanford University, her concentration on Renaissance
and baroque music performance led to a B.A in 1966 and a M.A. in
musicology in 1967.
In the early 1970's Ms. Myers turned to photography. Today she utilizes
various digital methods, as well as the platinum-palladium process and
continues her exploration of hand-applied color. She maintains her
residence and studio near Santa Fe, New Mexico, and teaches workshops
throughout the country.
