Joey Nash’s Mural Work with First Nations Students has been featured in a booklet created from her mural work at Parkcrest Elementary School. It is a tool used by and available to all First Nations Educators in the area.
In 2016 Joey experienced a heart-breaking personal loss which resulted in her being unable to paint for a time. Happily, she came to realize that she could combine her love of painting with her love for driftwood and soon, she found joy in her work, again. She now combines Driftwood, sourced on the shores of Shuswap Lake, with her paintings. The result is a loving salute to our local Wildlife on a uniquely Shuswap surface.
