Artist of the Month
Joyce Bradley



My Pieces use a loose approach, colorful palette, 
and a depth of perspective-allowing viewers to be drawn into the painting. I'm equally comfortable painting landscape, seascapes, or abstract expressionism.
          Raised in Mississippi, one of two children, it was there I first fell in love with the natural world. I try to balance composition and the scenes content, always 
pushing creativity to capture emotion.
I strive for a luminescent quality in each painting with satisfaction in making a simple subject compelling. I 
paint in oils on canvas with a small palette knife; 
this allows me to be more of a pure colorist.
          My collectors often express to me the feeling of calmness, serenity, and the feeling of being present
 in the scene.
          I don't draw anything out on canvas before I begin. I start just with paint, canvas, a little talent, 
and a lot of hard work.
