Joy has an extensive art collection of her admired famous international and local artists, and her collection is on display in her home. "You can hardly see the walls," she says. Busy as her life is, Joy has taken many classes at the Columbus College of Art and Design . Her favorite medium is graphite pencil on paper. Joy is never without her camera, as she takes pride in the original art she creates from her own photographs, and a sketchbook is always within reach. Joy puts her passion and experience to work. After receiving a Friendship of Education Award for an art project in 2000, she became a Docent of the Columbus Museum of Art. As a Board Member of the Worthington Arts Council, she created an "Art in Poetry" workshop for elementary school aged children. The children worked on creative poetry writing enlivened with their own watercolor decoration and illustration.
