What Clients Say
Joy came to our house to discuss doing a couple of paintings as we were redesigning our living room. We showed her the colours we wanted and the size etc and the sort of thing we had in mind. Joy understood exactly what we wanted. We were thrilled with the results and now are the proud owners of two of her paintings. They bring a fresh energy into the room and enhance our furnishings. Thanks Joy! David and June Worth Marbella, Spain
I have been collecting Joy’s work for a while which started with seeing her work at an exhibition in Manchester. where I bought a painting for my office. Since then she has done three paintings for my home. Joy has a natural intuition for knowing what will bring a room to life with the colours and design, I love her work and would highly recommend her if you’re looking for something special to hang on your walls.

This is a collection of 18 paintings celebrating trees, which you can see on the New Paintings link above.
Art Classes and Workshops
I run many different art classes and workshops for beginners and intermediate artist at my studio in Mijas Pueblo. It’s wonderful to see someone who hasn’t painted before discover that they can paint a beautiful picture! The classes are fun and friendly and there’s always a great atmosphere and many new friends are made.

What Students Say
I had been painting little watercolours for a while but felt a bit stuck doing the same things. I attended one of Joy’s workshops which I can honestly say transformed my whole view of painting! I’m now doing all different kinds of things, big flowers in acrylic, collage, abstracts, I have a new sense of freedom to painting and experimenting. It opened up a whole new world of art for me Thanks, Joy I have really discovered the hidden artist in me! Bev D. Mijas Pueblo.
Joy’s approach to painting is so inspiring, I hadn’t painted for years but wanted to start again. I was a bit nervous thinking I wasn’t any good. But after spending the day in Joy’s workshop I’m completely taken up with my painting. She filled me with the confidence I needed to be myself and not be afraid of trying new things and experimenting with different mediums, even large canvases! I’m so happy to be painting again Thanks, Joy! Jane Birch Estepona Spain
