As a mixed media, abstract painter living in Davidson, North Carolina, JOYCE WYNE‘s art taps into the personal growth aspect of our emotional and philosophical concerns derived from the issues we face today as a society. Her bold, colorful paintings using organic shapes, patterns and texture with collage, instill a delightful spirit to the viewer while encouraging and empowering them to follow their inner voice.
Graduating Magna Cum Laude from Nazareth College, Rochester, NY she was awarded The Gertrude Ford Award, recognizing one student for excellence in art at graduation. Her paintings have been exhibited in national, juried online exhibitions by the Women’s Caucus of Art and have appeared in their publications several times. In August 2021, her work was included in national juried publication Wild Lands. She has also appeared in several editions of Studio Visit Magazine. Other awards include two ASC Grants and two of their workshops. In December 2020, her banner design was chosen by the Town of Davidson in their juried Banner Project Call, and her banner was displayed on a flagpole on Main Street, Davidson.
