Joyce spent her first ten years in Brooklyn, NY and then became a Jersey girl until graduating from Douglass College, Rutgers University. In 1997, after spending 25 years as a textile designer in NYC she made plans to devote herself to painting full time. But fate had other plans- a painting related shoulder injury required her to re evaluate her painting techniques. It seemed she had two choices: learn to paint with her left arm/hand or scale down her work in order to use her wrist instead of her shoulder. Since painting small enabled her to learn more quickly, purchase art supplies less expensively and have more opportunities to exhibit she resolved to share her experiences in book, PDF and DVD formats. 
Joyce lives with her artist/chef/all round fixer-upper husband in Woodstock NY enjoying three grandchildren and  teaching watercolor in her home studio.
