About

Nature, realism and emotion are three words to describe my art. I delight in depicting the attitude or aura of an animal, or the vibrancy or delicacy of a flower. Using acrylic, pastels and oils as my mediums I create artworks of impact and beauty.

Regularly commissioned for my animal and floral artworks I love seeing my clients reactions when they lay eyes on their artwork for the first time. There is so much more to a bespoke painting that can only be experience when you recieve one. The brush strokes, delicate, subtle hues and tones and sheer depth of colour are not apparent until seen first hand.

I have exhibited a number of times in Brisbane and Perth and have also raised money for charities such as the Cancer Council and 13CHILD.

My goal for 2018 is to raise money via artwork sales for animal charities. I am holding an art exhibition which opens November 2nd 2018 at the Able Art Gallery, Coral Street Loganlea QLD.

Botanical and sealife artist Tamzin Barber will also be exhibiting.

As a regular donator to the World Animal Protection organisation, donating adoptee of rescued Orangutans and owner of many rescue animals during her life, Joy walks the talk. A percentage of her art sales makes its way to her favoured charities.
