Original paintings by Joy Dorr, Asheville, NC


JoyandRejoicing is an effort to inspire and uplift through nature, color and light.  I have found that the images surrounding me affect my frame of mind.  I hope my artwork enhances the peace and light in your home.


Thy words were found, and I did eat them; and thy word was unto me the joy and rejoicing of mine heart: for I am called by thy name, O LORD God of hosts.  Jeremiah 15:16


I am originally from New Jersey, but have adopted North Carolina as home, having lived here over 20 years.   Over the years I have experimented with many mediums, but have recently discovered alcohol ink and love painting with the vibrant colors.  

I also enjoy papier mache, ceramics, colored pencil, pen and ink and zentangle.  I just started needle felting, which is sculpture using wool fiber.
