Mejo Okon | New Mexico

I won Best of Show at last year’s Cowgirl Up! 2022 with my painting Glow. WOW! 
2023 will be my sixth year to participate in this extraordinary show.

November/December 2022 issue Art of the West featured my painting Bliss in its cover! What a bucket list achievement! You may also read a six page article on me in the July 2019 issue of Southwest Art magazine.

When not painting in my studio, I am often called upon as a courtroom sketch artist in Federal trials ~ those where cameras are not allowed. In July 2022, I was once again hired by ABC’s 20/20. This time I covered the Larry Rudolph, DDS, a month long trial in Denver, Colorado. You will find it on Hulu Zambia Safari Murder.

In May, I was actually hired on to play a courtroom artist for the movie Coyote vs Acme starring John Cena and Will Forte and Wile E. Coyote of Roadrunner cartoon fame. It is a live-action/computer-animated legal comedy film. The movie is scheduled to be released this summer.
