Born Joyce Ewing, in West Chester PA. Joyce has resided in Delaware for most of her adult life. She began drawing at age 9, discovering a flair for drawing which continued as a hobby until high school. Her talent blossomed in high school, taking 3 years of Commercial Art,
winning a Art Scholarship to Kansas University (an Art & Music College) at age 14. Her art teacher Mr. Black took an interest in her talent and is credited for providing encouragement and direction that culminated in her career as an artist.
Joyce worked in the Commercial Graphics industry as the Art Director for a local company, Dover Graphics. Joyce discovered air brushing at age 23, and trained in New York City with some of the top air brush artists of that time; Terry Hill, Phil Driscoll, Patrick Reynolds and many others. She then began a career in air brushing, and started her own airbrush business in 1986 which expanded into vehicle lettering, commercial design, and much more.
After putting her business on hold to raise her children, Joyce re-entered the art world with Learn2paint art studios, transitioning from the graphic arts to the fine arts. She is continuing to train with current masters in a variety of workshops and classes. Her media has expanded from just acrylics and airbrushing to watercolors and oils. She specializes in custom murals, portraits, and custom paintings, as well as a variety of workshops and art lessons.
