I am an oil painter from Pennsylvania. I haven't decided whether I am a realist or an impressionist; the degree of realism is different with each painting. My mother, Jolene Joyner, taught me how to paint after I graduated from Indiana University of Pennsylvania with an interior design degree in 2001. Since then I've taken workshops with other artists to continue my art education.
I paint mostly interiors, cityscapes, animals, some landscapes from photographs, and have recently started painting still lifes from life. My travels to the eastern United States, Canada and Europe largely inspire my paintings. I paint scenes that I think have a certain interaction between lighting, colors present and the item/place. My goal is to remind people, and myself, of the good things in a world that can be chaotic.
