PAINTINGS BY JOYCE


My passion for life is reflected through my use of color in my paintings.  I love to use bright and bold colors in my interpretation of large and beautiful flowers, local landscapes and trees.  I am the happiest when I am outside enjoying the beauty of nature or recreating it on a canvas.

I compose the painting as I go, when I paint I am completely involved in the process of putting paint on the canvas, adding bold strokes of color randomly, using intuitive color choices.   The end result is quite often a surprise, as I do not do well at planning, simply letting the moment take hold of me.  

The rich reds, purples, yellows and greens mingle to create semi abstract bold and uplifting art.  My intention as an artist is to impact the viewer with artwork that will make one's heart sing.  Nature has always been my inspiration.

PAINTING CLASS IN KELOWNA

I donated a painting lesson for 4 to a silent auction to raise funds for mentally challenged teens.  It was a great success, the ladies all did a fantastic painting.  We held it at Off the Grid Winery in West Kelowna.
