Josy is a Canadian artist, Past President and Honorary Member of the Society of Canadian Artists, elected member of the Canadian Society of Painters in Watercolour, and the Ontario Society of Artists, who lives in an oak savannah forest adjacent to the Pinery Provincial Park with husband Gord. Josy sees the potential of “Heaven on Earth” in nature everyday and especially while camping and canoe tripping and expresses this desire in her art.
Josy graduated with an Honours BA in Fine Arts from the University of Waterloo in 1979. Her paintings have hung in over 90 juried and group shows in regional and commercial galleries in Southwestern Ontario and in 16 solo exhibitions. Josy is inspired by circular time, which constantly reveals miracles in nature, and is compelled to paint and share her eyes’ interpretation with others.
