Joyce Stratton

New Bern



I began painting seriously when I was 50 so I've been painting for 23 years. for 20 of those years I have raised a grandson,(now a junior in college) this career, painting and doing a limited number of shows a year allowed me to be a stay at home mom for him. I have been honored to be accepted 4 times to do a residency in Ireland. the residencies have had a profound impact on my work.



mixed media gives me so much freedom to build and carve out a cohesive ending. my work is abstract and most work begins with words and phrases, so I paint a concept or idea rather then a literal image.
