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 just finished a series of ink drawings for another book by Vic Foerstoer, "Hidden in the Trees."  It will be published in early summer 2017.

 

 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.

 

 



Artworks : Animal Sculptures

 I decided to finally put a few of my dolls on the website.  

These are just examples.  I have been doing these for my own entertainment for most of my life.

I began to exhibit them a couple of years ago.  Since then I have had to think differently about them.  Three of them recentluy travelled to Finland in a show of Nordic American textile artists.  

I still see them as companions, little spirits.  

 There are several of these in the Paige Wiard Gallery in Calumet and also the Community Art Center in Hancock.  I keep making them...
