Joyce began painting when she lived in Teulon and then joined an art group. She took a few art classes and learned from her good friends at the Forum in Winnipeg. She paints in pastels, acrylics, oils and has written several children’s books. Joyce and her husband worked with stained glass and pottery and she has dabbled in almost every art form. Joyce and her family lived in many places in Manitoba and her creative expression was a constant in her life. She enjoys being creative in many art forms, fashion design, interior decorating, and cooking.
