 Joey Nash is a self-taught Professional Artist who was born in Edmonton, Alberta in 1953. She has lived many places, but she now calls the beautiful Village of Chase , B.C. home and is delighted to put down roots, at last. She began painting in 1979 & was exhibiting in Galleries in Vancouver, B.C. within the year. She became an Active member of The Federation of Canadian Artists the first time she applied.

A life change caused a return to Kamloops in 2002. Her passion for Art still had to be honoured & shared with others, so, she focused on teaching. Joey loved to share her passion for art & quickly became a favourite Teacher for Kamloops Art Gallery, Kamloops Recreation & Culture & taught privately as well. She explored various mediums & techniques while helping her students to find their voices as Artists &, when time off allowed, she produced over 40 paintings in one year.

Due to the encouragement of her much loved students, 2006 marked a rededication to her career. She celebrated her 1st Solo Show, received wide acclaim for her painting "Maggie", which won Juror's Choice, People's Choice & the prestigious Patterson Award .
