All of my work is a spiritual connection with my life, which has gone through many changes and looks like a patchwork.  It is always an attempt to combine imagery and abstraction, an ongoing striving to communicate while going deeper.  

 

In October I will have an exhibition of new drawings and mixed media work at the Community Arts Center in  Hancock, and in 2018 I will have an exhibition at the Bonifas Art Center in Escanaba.

 

I finished a series of ink drawings for another book by Vic Foerstoer, "Hidden in the Trees."  It was just published by Arbutus Press. 

 

 I have decided that one way I can share my work is to have giclee prints made.  So many of the images that are of interest could possibly be made into an archival print, about 15x17", for $150.  Please email me if you are interested.  joycek@chartermi.net.

 

My studio is in an old elementary school, 801 North Lincoln Drive in Hancock. I love visitors!  I am usually there but please call first: 906-370-3183.  My hours are erratic.

 

 



Artwork : Buffalo   << Return to other artworks

oil on canvas42''x47''
The buffalo is a protector spirit, ensuring that you will always have what you need. It has done that for me since I painted it. Now it is time to let it go.

It is now in the permanent collection of Keweenaw Bay Tribal College in L'Anse, Michigan. The Buffalo is one of their spirit animals.
