Joy has launched an online contemporary abstract art gallery with her paintings for sale from Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.  To order a painting or enquire please click here and send her a message or simply call 0400 466 998.

Joy first started painting in Colorado USA, where she 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 at Blue Cliffs 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 large canvases.

Joy’s paintings are incorporated as part of the interior design in very private self contained romantic villas (see www.bluecliffsretreat.com) that she and her husband have in Hepburn Springs, as well in her home/office in Fitzroy, Australia. Joy’s recent exhibits have been Private Exhibitions at her studio gallery in Fitzroy and at gallery cafes in Melbourne. For other exhibitions, see Recent Exhibitions
