About

about Joy

Yorkshire painter Joy Lomas, BA (Hons) Fine Art, works mainly in oils. Inspired by what she sees happening around her, she works to a chosen concept or theme. Each theme is developed as she takes on a new challenge. Her paintings exist to proclaim their own message, sometimes individually and sometimes as a body of work. As her inner thoughts and excitement spill out onto the canvas, she strives to make her paintings ‘speak’ using art as a silent universal language.
