Long story short, I've been an artist all my life...I may have worked in various capacities, but art was always in the forefront.  Along the way, I learned many lessons, one that resonates with me over and over....do what you love. Creating art is like a second breath to me.  Yes, I took a circuitous route, but landed right where I'm supposed to be...a mixed media artist.

My creativity and inspiration are products of my mother's influence...she has been incredibly creative all her life and I am lucky to be in the midst of it all.  Born and raised in New England, my childhood was spent outdoors running & playing around the neighborhood.  When I wasn't roaming around, I spent time in the backyard trees (until my grandmother prodded me down with a broom), creating a little world in my mind's eye.  Sometimes my imagination became a playmate-I believe this was the start on my creative path. 

Once I embarked on my creative journey, I was encouraged by family, friends and colleagues.  Sometimes discouraged, mostly optimistic, I pushed forward and began assembling my own collage=>creating an artistic life.  Along this path, my work has been well-received and for that I am grateful and thankful. Early on, my work was selected to be part of a private showing at the Wadsworth Atheneum in CT-I was honored and elated.  

I believe we all have the ability to tap into our creative capacities, find what inspires us, and realize what truly makes us joyful in this life....

I'm loving every minute of this!

To your creativity,

Joyce
