Joy Beckner

Joy Kroeger Beckner is inspired by sensuous shapes of skin, bone and muscle. She models clay into classical forms, which are then cast into bronze. She is thrilled to make something move in-the-round bringing smiles, giggles or tears to the eyes of those who see and touch her work. Since 1996, when she first showed in a national competition, her bronze dachshunds have earned numerous awards including the National Sculpture Society Silver Medal, an Award of Excellence from the Society of Animal Artists, the Ellin P. Speyer Prize from the National Academy and four Best-in-Shows. Art Show at the Dog Show sponsors purchased one for the American Kennel Club Museum of the Dog. Joy attended Washington University School of Fine Arts in her hometown, St. Louis, MO.
