ABOUT THE ARTIST

Jory’s work has been showcased in “Strokes of Genius 8: Exploring Texture!”  by North Light Books.

She teaches painting classes at the Plymouth Center for the Arts, and enjoys giving demonstrations. Jory is an experienced juror of awards. She has been an art director for many years and is now focusing on her painting. 

Jory attended L’Instituto D’Arte in Pietrasanta Italy where she had her first solo exhibition. It was completely sold out. She went on to study fine arts at the University of Iowa and then at the New England School of Art & Design. 

Over 30 years ago she attended her first pastel workshop with Master Pastellist, Albert Handell and fell in love with the medium. She has since enjoyed studying with Liz Haywood Sullivan, Sally Strand, Dawn Emerson, Alain Picard and Rob Liberace.
