ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR
Joyce loves painting nature in watercolors to create a loose translation of the subject. Her representational impressionist style is noted for dramatic lighting and clean colors. Joyce began painting in the early 1990’s with classes at the Corcoran School of Art in Washington, D.C. Later she painted weekly for 2 years with Dr. Morris Green of the Maryland College of Art & Design. Joyce also attended watercolor workshops with Frank Webb, Zoltan Szabo, Skip Lawrence, and Tom Lynch. Her works are influenced by the watercolor master, Ed Whitney.
Joyce enjoys sharing her enthusiasm for watercolor painting with students. She encourages students to be bold and fearless as they paint their own unique vision. Mistakes are welcomed learning experiences. Students find her classes enjoyable as she guides you step-by-step through the process of completing a watercolor painting. Joyce also teaches alcohol ink painting on ceramic tiles to create a fun & easy functional art form.
