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.

Comments About This Piece

I was inspired by the film A Beautiful Mind to create this abstract piece about mathematical thoughts. It was created with acrylic paint, ink and collage on a cradled wood panel with finished black edges. The work comes ready to hang.

Mixed media artwork

Mixed media refers to an artwork that is created using several different types of traditional art media, for example oil paint, ink and collage. The specific media used for each mixed media piece on UGallery is listed in the notes section.


A one-of-a-kind artwork is a unique piece handmade by the artist. There is only one in existence. The work may be part of a series, however, the piece itself is unlike any other. This piece is available exclusively at UGallery.
