An American review recently described David as “A romantic minimalist”. Probably because he’s never painted seagulls or boats in his ‘Scapes Series’!

THE GARDEN STUDIO
The Garden Studio is next to the Grange Inn, 1 mile from St Andrews, with a fine view of the town and St Andrews bay and north over to the Sidlaw Hills and beyond to the tops of the Grampian Glens.
Visitors are welcome by appointment.
“I have an everchanging 60 mile view which has been a great inspiration to me.”
David has a residency in a number of outlets for his paintings. The latest gallery exhibition running through October and November 2019 was opposite the new V&A Museum at Dock Street Studios in Dundee.
We were delighted and humbled to have the Scapes exhibit by David Joy with us. It was a fantastic opportunity for all to experience his captivating paintings with such subtle light and depth of textures.
