Artist & Instructor Robert Joyner

Hi, I'm Robert Joyner

My favorite materials are acrylics, watercolors, paper, worn paintbrushes, graphite, crayons and inks. My style has been described as loose, bold and unique which I tend to agree with.

The majority of my time is spent making really bad art. Occasionally I get lucky and create winners, too. Guess I like to play & doodle more than painting finished pieces which I find rather boring. Somehow I manage to make a living & paint full time - lucky me.

I'm currently focused on urban & cityscape themes as well as getting back to my first love - watercolors. Most of the subject matter is Richmond & Maine.

Making Fine Art Affordable

My goal as a full time art professional is to make fine art affordable and accessible for everyone, not just the rich. I enjoy connecting with collectors all around the world from retired Military to the middle class single mom that deserves to own great art. I've never agreed with the pretentious art world so galleries do not interest me. I strive to fight the good fight and thankfully there's enough interest in my work to do it. See available paintings here.
