About Joie: Joie Chandler is the founder and director of Backyard Moonshine Art Collective, a local arts-based service organization. She has been a working artist for over 15 years, specializing in portraiture and oils. While still an undergraduate student at the University of St. Thomas, Joie did an in-residence apprenticeship with Houston master painter, Cholla. This was the beginning of a twenty year mentoring relationship which lasted until Cholla's passing last winter. This is Joie's second year participating in Via Colori, with the help of some fellow Backyard Moonshine members. When not painting or organizing art happenings, Joie spends her time teaching art to children, practicing classical ballet, and tending her flock of urban chickens with her daughter.
