Joy has green fingers, in fact, if it had not been for paint- ing she would have liked to become a gardener. Moreover, nature became her principal inspiration. She describes her work as poeticising reality. From her earliest childhood Joy de Rohan Chabot dreamed of imaginary gardens, which thus naturally became a recurrent theme in her collections.
An exceptional and multidisciplinary artist, she lets her talent find expression using a very wide range of materials includ- ing iron, wood, glass and aluminum. She carves wood, pol- ishes glass, cuts metal, applies lacquer, paints sheet metal, gilds using gold leaf etc. Her hands and skillful brushes give birth to original and dream-like pieces, which invite us to discover the highly personal universe that distinguishes her.
