"Transforming the Landscape"
Joyce Hicks' is a self taught artist that brings her personal expressions and point of view to all of her work. Frequent travel has allowed Joyce her to see and define what her heart is drawn to. "Not in the grand or extraordinary but in simple unassuming beauty". In her attempt to translate her feelings for a subject she uses brush strokes, strong contrasts, sunlight and shadow in colors both soft and bold. Her purpose is to uplift the human spirit and inspire others to join her as she continues her artistic journey.
She is a member of numerous societies including Signature member Status in the American Watercolor Society and past President of the Central Texas Watercolor Society. Her extensive awards throughout the US have given her the recognition throughout the watercolor community as a truly gifted artist and teacher.
