Featured Artists of the Month
Featured Artists February 2019
Joyce Alexander, Paintings
Joyce's oil painting style revolves around a strong sense of color and movement. She enjoys painting landscapes and abstracts. "I have always been a visual person and color is a big part of my world. I see color everywhere," Joyce says. "I have the most fun painting abstracts because my brush and palette knife seem to connect with my thoughts. I never begin an abstract--they just seem to happen. I often rework a piece which adds layers of texture and color." Her landscapes are from photographs, although she has ventured into plein air painting. "I discovered painting outdoors directly increases my ability to get oil paint on myself and the car," Joyce quips. As a former teacher, she painted weekly with a group of friends, growing and experimenting with her art. Since retiring and relocating to New Bern in 2015, Joyce paints at her home studio and is active with Twin Rivers Artists Association.
