Joyce learned to paint by her own initiative and with formal instruction from professionals. Combining a love of painting with travel, she has studied plein air in places such as Italy, the Republic of Georgia, and Hawaii as well as locally and through out the United States.
In her Mulberry Banks studio on Farnham Creek in the Northern Neck of Virginia, Joyce paints oil paintings of subjects ranging from figures and animals to landscapes. Painting outside of the studio, she does small paintings and studies for larger studio paintings. Extensive travel can be credited for her cultural awareness, and her paintings have a narrative flow true to the people and places that inspired them.
As an exhibiting member of the Bon Air Artist Association and a member of the Virginia Plein Air Painters, she exhibits in different shows and fund raisers. Self expression and inner passion are the driving force behind her painting.
