Joy’s Bio

Bio pic-sm

August, 2013

A physical therapist by trade, Joy Petty has always possessed a deep passion for art.  As a child, Joy dreamed of being an animator for Walt Disney.  Although life took her on a different path, in the past few years Joy has returned to her passion by learning to paint with oils and various forms of media. She now enjoys experimenting with acrylics, modeling paste, joint compound and oil paints. Joy’s inspiration primarily comes from nature.  Although she feels strongly she can’t possibly recreate the beauty God created in nature’s landscapes and living creatures, she attempts to capture her feeling of admiration for such wonders on canvas by use of her palette knife and rich green, red, gold or blue hues.  Joy has also found artistic outlet through “Paint N Pour” parties, which she began conducting in September of 2009.  Joy feels tremendously blessed to have been given the opportunity to own her own art gallery and studio from April 2013 to March 2015.  Although the gallery and studio is no longer open, Joy still enjoys instructing private Paint N Pour Parties and Paint N Punch Summer Camps, as well as painting original pieces of art in her spare time. If you are interested in having a private paint party in your home or at a venue of your choice, gather together 10 friends and contact Joy at 281-7197 or joypetty@cox.net to book your private party today!
