May Art Always Uplift you.

Joy Lohse Biography


I am an oil painter. I love its colors, smells, textures, layers and mostly the surprise when something beautiful emerges from the canvas. 

​My subjects are life-giving and upbeat ---- my theme is, "May Art Always Uplift You." 

Style: I have received training and mentoring from highly regarded regional American Impressionist Sarah Creason; a major influence. My painting is influenced by both Impressionism and Realism while I prefer my work to have a bit of both influences but never to be classified as either. 

Subjects: my work is classic as are my subjects. I love nature and have an affinity for preserving our lakes, trees, wildlife and humanity. I hope my art reflects this.
