About the Book
Joy Engelman is an international award winning artist having won 5th place for paintings at the Biennale dell Art'e di Contemporanea in Firenze, Italy in 2007. Traveling through the outback of Australia, one is amazed at the variety of landscapes, the richness of colours and forms, the light that changes each moment, the distant hills. It is a beautiful land and has been captured in this coffee table book by this well known artist, Joy Engelman, a regular traveler of the outback as she searches for inspiration for her paintings.
The highlight of my career has been taking my paintings to Florence, Italy and being awarded the Lorenzo il Magnifico Award for Paintings in 2007. After 30 years of painting, it was a fantastic experience to be in the great city that was home to Leonardo and Michaelangelo and be given a Medici Medal. My love of the landscape underpins my paintings and photography. I do hope you enjoy my books.
