For over forty years, Joyce has carved an artistic and creative life on the land. She has developed her own personal style of painting using flat brushes, vigorous brush-work and pure paint on a dark ground. For watercolour, she prefers a wet-on-wet background technique and for acrylics, she applies many layers of thing glazes to achieve the depth and mystery that her paintings are well known for.
A prolific and dynamic painter, Joyce has a passionate commitment to portray the beauty in which she lives so that others may experience and remember the wilderness in its infinite and changeable wisdom. Algonquin is an area to preserve and protect… we and our future generations depend on that primal connection with nature.

The art of Joyce Burkholder reflects a profound love and appreciation of the Canadian landscape and her unique way of seeing and painting what surrounds her. Joyce prefers to paint primarily outdoors on location in all seasons, using oils, acrylics, and watercolour.
