YOUR HOSTS

Raisy Derzie
Instructor 

Born and raised in Lebanon and after teaching French and art for a few years, I came to New York in the late ’60s with my husband. I studied at the New York School of Interior Design in Manhattan. When we relocated to Long Island, I started painting again and met some wonderful and talented artists who became my longtime friends! I was also introduced to printmaking and worked at the Ruth Leef Studio in Douglaston. There I produced many prints. Two of them, “The Kurdish Family” and “The Protest,” were reproduced in the NY Times with a great article by Phillis Braff.

As a longtime member of the Graphic Eye Gallery in Port Washington, I had numerous solo shows, including the display of nine panels that constituted the decor for an off-Broadway play, “Rewriting Her Life” by Barbara Masry. Three years ago, I discovered a program on the IPad called “Brushes,” and I started experimenting and producing numerous large pieces printed on archival paper. This method that David Hockney employed and thereby legitimized is a new art form! One of my large works is “Teatime with cousin Berty,” and it has been featured in the NY Times.

Joan Hill
Owner, Host, & Director

Years ago, it was suggested to Joan that she might offer an art program, and she jumped at the chance of a lifetime. Bringing together all of her life's passions, the development and administration of Artful Journeys is an exhilarating process for Joan.

 

Joan was born and raised in the apple country of the Hudson River Valley in New York; her father was a gentle, very tolerant, educated land surveyor, and her mother was the efficient business administrator and home engineer. The youngest of four children, Joan was encouraged to pursue anything she wanted, but also to do her best. Sometimes that was very difficult, especially succeeding three very accomplished siblings.
