Joyce was only 8 years old when she created her very first art images in her grandmother's living room. During her adolescent years, she was guided to pursue an academic education. Years later, the demands of corporate life kept her too busy to pursue her love of art. However, in the mid 90's she made art a serious part of her life. Joyce's calling was confirmed as a professional artist after taking various art courses that followed with her achieving an honours in graphic design.

"There is an unparalleled and invigorating energy emanating from the Torrance Barrens and the Dark Sky area, that just compels me to create. This energy modifies during the day from a serene wilderness landscape to a night sky of sparkling diamonds with a silver moon and an occasional eclipse or northern lights spectacle. I'm grateful for being able to tap into this energy which, connects me to it in a way that is absolutely incredible and amazing. Many individuals have cherished such a special place for decades. I return to it as often as I can, as it provides inspiration for the works that I create."

Joyce's inspiration is further derived from Muskoka's four seasons; intense colourful sunsets; the vibrant splashes of the autumn colours;  a crystalline prismatic winter; an iridescent green spring and the subdued brilliance of summer. These attributes are reflected in her diverse array of artworks comprised of: oil, acrylic, watercolour, canvas, paper, wood & stone; (some in 3D).

Her exclusive renderings have become prized keepsakes to eclectic collectors, some worldwide that visit Muskoka to acquire her quality art pieces.

"In Muskoka, my work has appeared at the Torrance Barrens Dark Sky Studio, the' Rock-Paper-Scissors,'  show at the Chapel Gallery, the Annual Spring Members' Show, and will be at the coming Christmas Show and Sale in Bracebridge.
