Joy first started painting in the 70s, created and ran a very successful batik business in Colorado, USA. For the past 25 years Joy has been in private practice as a psychotherapist incorporating art in her therapy work.

Today, Joy spends her time between her home office practice in Fitzroy and her retreat in Hepburn Springs, Victoria, painting in both spaces.

The colors of sunrise and sunset are the most inspiring for Joy as she loves vibrant colors which she incorporates in her impasse, abstract paintings on (mostly) large canvases.
