About Our Art….featuring Joy Luke

[ 0 ] July 6, 2011 |

We have new art displayed in our lobby featuring water color by local artist, Joy Luke!  This art has vibrant colors to it as well as some really great animal paintings; I am really excited to have this artist’s work in our lobby.

Joy was born in England and grew up in the beautiful Cotswold district of the West Country. From an early age she had a passion for painting, animals, plants and flowers. 

She came to America in 1969 and in 1977 founded the Bloomington Auction Gallery.  She is a Certified Auctioneer Association Member, a Master Personal Property Appraiser, specializing in fine arts and personal property.  After many years in the fine arts and antiques profession she sold the business in 2007.

Upon retirement she resumed her love of painting.  She studied during her winter months in Florida with Donna Burgess, a noted Florida watercolor artist, and for the past three years has been her teaching assistant.  During this past winter she has given weekly classes at Sandestin Beach Resort.  She has received many commissions for pet portraits in Illinois and Florida, and currently divides her time between Bloomington and Florida.
