Today we are honored by the addition of a new local area artist in the Gallery’s Choice family. Joyce Knuepfer joins us as a watercolor portrait artist. Joyce started painting in her 40’s and learned her craft mostly by painting in groups, where she was able to pick up tips and see how other painters approached their work. Starting out in oil media, she transitioned to watercolor, where she recalls painting cards featuring young children and animals. Portraits in watercolor has been her most recent muse, focusing on this subject more or less exclusively for the past three years.
This seasoned artist accepts commissions and enjoys the challenges involved with capturing likenesses when asked to do them. Joyce’s passion for her art is amazing and inspiring as she is 93 years young, and only started to learn her craft as an adult. You can view her work and purchase pieces from the gallery!
We hope you will take inspiration from Joyce and join us for watercolor, oil or acrylic painting classes!
