Joy Flynn received Bachelor of Arts degrees from the University of North Dakota in Grand Forks. She has been an independent studio artist in New York City and Grand Forks. She has also traveled extensively in western Europe, especially Norway.
Flynn sees the ethereal light used by the 19th Century Norwegian masters to achieve the intensity of color and variety of light that marks her work.
Flynn has taught at several schools and colleges in eastern North Dakota and presently divides her time between Grand Forks and Savannah, Georgia, where she teaches at the Savannah College of Art and Design.
She was also featured with seven other North Dakota artists in the 2003-2005 North Dakota Blue Book.
