About Joy

Joy Pesaturo is a self-educated Artist living in the beautiful San Juan Islands of Washington State.  She is drawn toward the Abstract in both expressionism and impressionism.  Her work tends to be born of layer after layer of color that develops itself into the painting that it was meant to be. 

She is well known for her JOURNEY Series which depicts the beautiful spawning salmon. 


Joy spends a good deal of her time sharing her love of art with the children in her community.  She feels that art is an important factor in educating a whole child, She enjoys creating positive and empowering art lessons that will encourage children to explore their creativity for years to come.  


Joy's works are held in private collections internationally.
