Ginny Joyner began her career as an artist at a very early age, decorating her parent’s furniture and walls with her lively crayon drawings. She was told that paper was a more acceptable surface on which to create pictures and has since been pleased to find that people
enjoy her work. Born in Adelaide Australia, she has lived in Japan and many states along the Eastern Seaboard, from Florida to Massachusetts, settling in Vermont in 1989. 
Ginny graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design in 1986 with a BFA in Illustration. She has been a freelance illustrator for over 30 years with clients including Harper Collins Publishers, The W.S. Badger Co., Gardener’s Supply, Sleeping Bear Press, Garlic Press and The Vermont Teddy Bear Co., among many others.
Her children’s book, M is for Maple Syrup, A Vermont Alphabet, is part of the State-by-State series published by Sleeping Bear Press. She is a member of the Vermont Watercolor Society and teaches watercolor classes to beginners and advanced students through programs in Colchester and Hinesburg, VT as well as in her home studio at historic Fort Ethan Allen. She is represented by The Three Pears Gallery in Dorset, VT. She lives with her husband, folk painter Howard Riley, her very talented daughter, Lucie Adelaide and their cute but ferocious Scottie dog, Ringo.
"I have always been drawn to intricately patterned objects, natural and manmade, from butterfly wings, vibrant flowers and complicated seashells to European and Oriental porcelain, pastries, shoes and even the humble apple core.”
