”Joya: AiR is an artist’s haven woven into a landscape of mountains and almond tree fields. The studios were the perfect balance of solitude and community. The days were productive and filled with painting, writing and exploring the landscape around the property for hours. The outdoor exploration spanned several kilometres in every direction and would rarely include a sighting of another person. In my creative work I was able to explore new techniques that I will continue to use and hope to explore further. The evenings were filled with good conversations with other residents and Simon and Donna, and of course wonderful food. 

Thank you both, Simon and Donna.
