Joanne Y. Pierce is a world-renowned Fine Artist, Illustrator, Educator, and Entrepreneur. Since she was a small child, Joanne has ridden, dreamed about, and drawn horses, which has always been her favorite subject. With a degree in Art Education, Joanne has worked as an art teacher in private and public institutions throughout Long Island.
In 2019, Joanne and her son/manager Tom created a free art lesson digital series called Pierce the HeArt Lessons. Their mission is to fill the creative and therapeutic void that so many human beings are experiencing today with Joanne's talents, passions, and life experiences.
As the pandemic hit in 2020, Joanne went into overdrive to provide free weekly Pierce the HeArt Lessons live from her home studio to help bring more creativity, peace, and fun to the world.

"Like a lot of the industry, horse media and entertainment, especially digital, is fraught with pain points and inefficiencies that offer clear opportunities to us. We want our capital table to represent the true diversity of the global horse world. The authenticity of our all-are-welcome brand should be represented from the top down." - CEO Tom Pierce
