The natural life around me has a way of tickling my eyes and touching my soul. Nature, in particular flowers along with color and light all have the elements I need to create my images. I love to draw, paint and photograph images of what I think are beautiful subjects many long to see. Subjects that can be turned into the kind of art that emulates what I am feeling at that moment in time. I am excited about my work at this stage of my life. What I hope to accomplish is to create, share works that excite/calm and make people take notice of nature in a crazy world. I hope my creations bring an appreciation for the elements of nature in the art I present.
I took every class I could during high school and continued to paint and draw on my own. A degree in art at college didn't work out because of an art instructor that preached quantity NOT quality, so I left my major and ended up with a BFA in English Literature and a concentration in music.
Since 1998, Joyce has been teaching art education out of her home studio to children and twice yearly for a home-school organization called 'The Master's Lyceum'. I am in my thirteenth year now and I have enjoyed teaching art education to the next generation of artists.
I continue to paint as much as I have time for. I take classes when I can to help continue improving my skills, to diversify my mediums and styles. I love calls for commissions to paint murals and custom fine art. It's thrilling for me to be in a consultation listening to a client tell me what they dream of having in their home and then giving them a finished work of art that expresses exactly how the client feels. I want the client to be proud showing off the custom art in their home. This has been an exciting adventure and I look forward to what tomorrow will bring.
