LAndscape and Figures

"Ever sense I was a child I have been fascinated  with Monet's color and light. This love has followed me all my life. The female nude has been my focus as an adult, bringing dignity and taste to a sometimes wanting subject."


PEt Portraits

"Pet portraits will always bring a smile to my face and heart. I love all animals and they have always been my best friends. I hope this shows in my work. I look forward to working with you to create a one-of-a-kind portrait of your pet."


PRivate Instruction

"After forty-five years of work in the art world, I have accumulated an enormous amount of knowledge. It is my great happiness to share this knowledge with you and help you develop as an artist. Let's paint!"


About Joy

Joy Malin is an artist and art instructor based in New York City.  A working artist for more than 45 years, Ms. Malin creates art objects using a variety of media, including oil on canvas. 

For the past few years she has focused on "Pet Portraits". These are commissioned works, always one of a kind and highly personalized.

These portraits now hang in homes across this country as well as the United Kingdom and Europe. 

The New York Times was kind enough to write an article in the Metro Section about my "Pet Portraits".

It has been an exciting time and very rewarding.
