Joyce Stratton
new bern, North Carolina

Joyce Stratton didn’t start painting until age 50. She always wanted to, but as she says, life was in the way. Starting with watercolors, Joyce soon found her calling when she discovered abstract in acrylic. Her abstract paintings begin with a word or phrase, and then become process driven from that point on. “People need to know that creating an abstract, at least for me, is not a walk in the park,” Joyce says. “It is 90% thinking, 10% doing.” Joyce’s work has appeared in several art publications and she has received multiple artist residency awards in Ireland.
