Artist Showcase

The Lost City Museum is excited to present the artwork of Joy Lamb during the month of June in the Museum’s rotating gallery.

About the Artist:

Joy adores art in all forms. She especially enjoys painting in watercolor.

Having moved residences 21 times in her life, so far, she has learned to see and find art everywhere. Growing up, her family was always creating. Her mother used sewing to create wonderful projects and her father painted wall murals. When her family moved from Chicago (after a short time in Minnesota), they embarked on a three-month cross-country travel-trailer trip that led them to California.

She graduated from San Diego State University and later earned her MBA. Joy married her high school sweetheart and together they raised two children and now are involved with their twin granddaughters. She taught in elementary schools and during that time was asked to and did run an outdoor education program for K through sixth grades. When living in Washington state, she became interested in computer work and became a technical writer for a computer company. This job involved a lot of travel throughout the U.S. while teaching adults software programs.

Travelling is a part of her life, having visited England, Scotland, Germany, Greece, Japan, Singapore, Malaysia. She enjoys the local art everywhere. Native art and crafts became an interest on trips to Australia. Rock-hunting and outdoor life is a lifetime hobby for her family.

Joy currently lives in Logandale, Nevada, with her husband and is an active member of Moapa Valley Art Guild and Virgin Valley Art Association.
