“Nature is one glorious breathing entity. Each sculpture I create is like an incarnation of a single breath, containing enough elements to convey some of the essence of the whole. I work in handmade paper and organic objects, which imbue the work with a mortality of its own.”

Joyce earned an MFA in sculpture from the University of Iowa, studying under master papermaker Timothy Barrett. Her unique method of sculpting with paper pulp is described in the Winter “98 volume of HAND PAPERMAKING” and in “THE PAPERMAKER’S COMPANION” (© 2000 by Helen Heibert.) She lives in Sandwich, Massachusetts, and exhibits nationally.

“I explore the notion that females are able to age without fear and with fun and flair. Humor, color, pattern, and movement are important in each composition. There is an investigation of anatomy and technique with the intention that what is being seen by the viewer expresses a moment in time. I want the viewer to relate to the figures in each painting, with the idea that color is an important aspect to the mood of the composition. My motivation to be an artist and the ongoing exploration of color began with growing up along the border of Del Rio, Texas.”

“What moves me to paint are the unnoticed miracles abundant in nature. I am intrigued by looking close-up and painting intimate views. The purpose of this approach is to say “slow down, look closely at God’s creation, there is a world of wonder right under your nose.”

Carolyn’s award-winning art work has been published in cat fancy, American style magazine, Atlanta style and design, and on the cover of the journal of the American veterinary medical association. Her painting of a Labrador retriever is featured on one of the Georgia specialty license plates.
