ARTIST JOY A. COLLIER

Joy A. Collier is a California landscape artist known for her vibrant paintings of Giant Sequoia Trees, the Central Valley and Desert regions, as well as abstract nature work.

In regards to painting her local environment, she states, “I am a nature lover out enjoying the astounding beauty of the California Landscape. I was taught: ‘Paint what Smiles at You!’ I love where I live. Success Valley and Mine Hill are my backyard in Porterville, California, and my “Moods of Mine Hill” series and “Oak Lace” series are glimpses into the constantly changing subtle moods of the hills and oaks that I view every day. Then there are the Sequoias! I’m in love with these unique giants that are found nowhere else on earth. I’ve been painting the giants and their habitat for many years now, they offer an endless variety of rich forms and textures to explore.”

 

 

Working in acrylics with a background in plein air, Joy’s paintings are in a post-impressionistic style, influenced most by Cezanne and Monet. With the development of high quality giclee prints on canvas, she now shares her original paintings as prints that are affordable, and can be custom sized.
