Work by Joyce Turk
October 7 - November 3, 2019

Joyce Turk has lived and worked in the Washington D.C. area for the past 30 years. An artist since she was a child, she was instructed at an early age by her father and later by professional workshop instructors. She has studied with Alan Flattman, Walter Bartman, John Seerey-Lester, William Herring, Albert Handell, Richard McKinley and Terry Ludwig.

As an adult, Joyce has combined her career in science with her artistic endeavors. Her art reflects her love of animals as well as landscapes rich in design and color. Her art tells the story of her international travels from the jungles of Borneo to African savannahs, the altiplano of South America to the majestic Himalayas. She carries her art supplies with her on her travels. 

Joyce has exhibited in numerous solo shows, group exhibitions, juried shows and competitions, and twice has placed in the top 100 of over 3,000 entries in international competitions. Her forte is pastels which she employs with great sensitivity on a variety of supports, each lending a unique look and feel to her subjects. Her paintings can be found in collections in Africa, Canada, Europe, and the U.S. View Joyce’s work online here.
