Joy Hawkridge


Joy is a self taught abstract artist who’s passion for art started at an early age. Born in Germany to English and German parents, raised in South Africa and now based between London and Dublin. Her love for travel and nature play a huge roll in inspiring her work. Joy uses texture and colour to bring emotion and feeling into her large abstract art pieces.

The use of muted natural tones give tranquility and calmness to the likes of her 'Natural Elements' series. , she uses a brighter, more playful palette that shout excitement in her 'Abstract Florals' Joy takes influence and encouragement from the great artists of the 20th century such as Monet, Van Gogh, Picasso, Pollock, Frankanthaler etc. Art is a never ending learning experience that Joy thrives on.

Having exhibited in many of Londons top Art fairs including The Other Art Fair by Saatchi Art, Roys Art, Parallax and the like, Joy's large abstract commissions have been featured in various Magazines and media sites, her artworks are described as stand out, focus pieces.

“I love using texture and colour to bring emotion and feeling to my work. I’m an adventurer at heart and I’m always experimenting with different media. I find exploring the artistic world so fulfilling. My dream of exhibiting and sharing my art around the would is coming true.” JH
