Ann Joyce is a long-time member of the SCAA, who has been exhibiting since 1998. She has been accepted into numerous juried shows in Rhode Island, winning 3 Honorable Mentions, a Third Place award in the "Fur, Feathers and Fins" show at Wickford Art Association, as well as People's Choice in their Poetry and Art Exhibit. In addition, she has had a plein air painting accepted for the Live Auction at the 2014 Newport Art Museum Wet Paint Event. We asked Ann a series of questions about her art. Here's what she had to say:
Where are you from, and what do you make?
I am originally from Houston, Texas. My husband, son, and I moved to Rhode Island in 1993. I paint in oils, acrylics, and watercolors. I mostly paint in oils.
Which artist outside of your chosen medium has had the most impact on your art? What do they do and in what way do they influence you?
The artist outside of my chosen medium that has had the most impact on my art is sculptor Isamu Noguchi. He created bold, simple organic sculptures inspired by nature. He believed that nature was of fundamental importance to the human condition. I have always loved his work. I used to visit the Noguchi Sculpture Garden in Houston. It was a beautiful place of serenity and peace. I hope I can have that serenity and peace and connection with nature in my life and in my art.
