SAYER, Joy

1944 - ?

Joy A. Sayer, was born at Bures, Suffolk in 1944, daughter of Victor Arthur Sayer (1920-29 June 2013) and his wife Vera Ellen née Cansdale (4 Aug 1920-1989), who married at Sudbury in 1942. An exhibition was opened at Debenham's at Harrow on 19 March 1976 'of the work of Suffolk born artist Joy Sayer. A great lover of the countryside, this is depicted in many of her pictures. In particular clouds and trees hold for her a great fascination and she has plenty of time to observe both, when on her daily walks with her dog, 'Silver'. However Miss Sayer by no means confined her work to the area of her native village of Bures, but travels to the Midlands, Northern England and many coastal areas. For most of the time Miss Sayer works in pastel...delicate tones for her portraits studies and nudes, which she is also including in the exhibition.' (Harrow Observer 16 Marh 1976). She married in 1979 John R. Graham.
