Joellyn Duesberry is a landscape painter who works in oils. She has painted all over the world, but her main areas of focus are the NorthEast and Western United States. She's a self-taught painter and printer, with the exception of a month spent with Richard Diebenkorn during 1986 NEA Painting Grant. This prompted her to move to Colorado.
