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.  

 

My studio is now in my house at 1100 Hill Street, Hancock, MI 49930.  

 

My latest work is small acrylic paintings like icons of birds and bears.  I have just posted them under Animal Paintings.

  

My remaining oil paintings and much of my recent works are in my sister's gallery in Anaconda, Montana, the Stop Light Gallery.

 

I also have some work in two local galleries:  Paige Wiard in Callumet and the Community Arts Center in Hancock.

 

I have decided that one way I can share my work is to have giclee prints made.  Many of the  larger 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.

 

 

 



Artworks : Early Work

 This work is very early, from the time in grad school, through my teaching years in Gambier, Earlham and LaCrosse, before I moved back north.  I recently digitalized my slides and decided to look at these early images.  Many of them were done with fabric rather than work on paper.
