Joyce was born and educated in Gloucestershire England. She is currently studying for a diploma in art and creativity with TLC Wellington, yes at 75 years old! She has painted birds (which are her passion) and has branched out into other work including wine labels, pets and larger works. Watercolours and acrylic are her main choice but she also uses pencil, graphite and homemade charcoal. We used her lovely delicate watercolour paintings of some Manuka flowers for our Manuka Honey Lip Balm tin lid.
