About Joy and her Art (click to expand)
Joy has a lifelong interest in visual art and has painted and drawn from childhood. She enjoys creating artworks from natural subject matter drawn from the environment.
Her vibrant and emotive paintings realistically capture the beauty she sees around her. Hugely popular, Joy’s animal portraits reflect the empathy and love she has for animals. Her large floral art and tree inspired paintings are lively and colourful, reflecting her personality.
Like many artists, the natural world is a constant source of inspiration for Joy as natural beauty speaks to her heart and soul.
"Joy was a pleasure to work with. ... she was enthusiastic ... and helped shape the finished product to suit ... The final painting ... become one of our most treasured possessions. Can't speak highly enough of Joy and her work."
Excelling at interpreting specifications for art requests Joy has produced and sold multiple artworks this way. Her artworks inject homes with colour and energy, creating a personal, beautiful focus.
Community minded and from a nursing background, Joy regularly raises money for charity through her artwork.

"Joy was a pleasure to work with. From the very beginning she was enthusiastic about the project, and helped shape the finished product to suit what I was looking for. The final painting - a collage all of my wife's pets, past and present - is an absolutely beautiful piece. It's become one of our most treasured possessions. The life she has managed to give to so many of our furry and feathered family is remarkable. Can't speak highly enough of Joy and her work."
" i just picked up my painting from Joy. It is so beautiful and i can't wait to hang it in my apartment. Joy seemed such a lovely and warm person..."
