Joy is an oil painter and also enjoy travelling and photographing landscapes, especially in Australian rural settings. Often these two passions are linked by capturing Australian scenes and landscapes in oils.
Post retirement, Joy’s interest in painting was realised and has since been enjoying weekly lessons.
With a particular focus on realism, colour and perspective, Joy encourages viewers to be drawn into her paintings.
Joy wants her paintings to mean something to friends and relatives so often paints favourite places, personalising them by adding a familiar figure to the scene.
Joy takes great pleasure in gifting her paintings to family but has also sold a few favourites, and has been commissioned from time to time.
