With a successful 30+year career as a decorative artist/muralist behind her, dog portraiture actually became the bridge to the fine art studio. Her paintings were well received with ongoing commissions and recognition/awards in juried canine venues.
In 2010 Joyce abandoned acrylics, beginning classes in traditional oil painting with an established instructor in Bucks County. Her portrait work has advanced beyond the canine; still lifes, some landscape, but especially his human companions, while still enjoying the limited color palette. http://www.joycedankopainting.com
When not at the easel, Joyce's interior/exterior color consultation service advises clients at a technical level based on values, color relationships and retail product knowledge.
Joyce resides in the Lehigh Valley with her husband, one of her 2 sons, and 3 jack russells.
