Becky Joy

Painting in the historic Plein Air style, she paints impressions of what she sees and feels in her creative trips to the open air and in the studio. True to her desire for painting from life, Becky also paints luscious and colorful still lifes. After moving to Arizona from Oregon in 1993, Becky attended classes and workshops at the Scottsdale Artists School then began to hike and paint on trips throughout the west. Becky juried into Women Artists of the West in 1997. In the summer of 1998, she was included in a show at the Phippen Museum in Prescott, AZ called Painters of the American Desert. She has been published in Art of the American West, Southwest Art Magazine and in the Phoenix Home and Gardens Magazine. Her paintings have been collected by the Kierland Resort and Spa, American Equity Insurance, Banner Hospital and Pioneer Home Bank.
