I'm Becky Joy, an artist, a painter, a teacher and an explorer…….at least in my corner of the world.
I’ve been known to take off on a minute’s notice for a painting trip. The exploration of new places is as exciting to me as the process of painting. Plein air painting is that perfect combination.
That spirit of exploration started when I was a child exploring the woods, creeks and river with my sister growing up in Oregon. With paper, pencils and pastels in constant supply, I remember hours of sitting and laying on the floor with my dad as we drew on four foot wide rolls of paper. At twelve I stretched myself and went for the oil paints. Since that time painting has been a constant companion of mine.
After years of treating art as a hobby and getting a “real job” (I was a hairdresser for 19 years), I finally took charge of my education in art and became self directed and pro-active. In 2000 I started taking workshops, studying with many well known artists. I was on my way to living my lifelong dream as a professional artist.
I welcome you into my corner of the world to experience the light and colors of fleeting moments….glowing sunsets and light filled, luminous landscapes with a visual delight of color and playful, painterly brushwork.
