Joy Connell is an emerging Brisbane Artist who paints her subject with soul, finding beauty emerges from taking care of all the little details. She recently retired from nursing after 34 years in the profession to become a full-time artist. Her artworks are vibrant, lush and eye catching. Her favourite subjects are flowers, animals and people. Her art helps to remind us of the beauty of mother nature and the importance of caring for the world in which we live.
Joy is a listed artist of ArtSt, a Brisbane based platform for emerging artists. She is also a listed artist with Art House Reproductions and Buy Art Now, where a selection of her artwork has been professionally photographed and is available as reproductions. Several of her reproduction artworks have been recently snapped up by an exclusive international hotel chain.
Joy also exhibits at Art House’s Gallery 6/31 at Bowen Hills.
Joys artworks are the result of a lifelong interest in art and years of practice. In the last few years, in a desire to broaden her skills, she has attended an art residency in South Australia as well as various workshops and courses.
Group exhibitions and entries into competitions around Brisbane since 2017 have resulted in awards, sales and private commissions. Her work has sold in Australia and the UK.
