Joyce Paul has been an artist for decades and her artwork has always had an element of Art Deco whimsy to it. She works primarily in oil as the lushness and never ending nuances of the paint intrigues her. She uses fairly vivid colors and the intentional warp or distortion is on purpose, adding to the fanciful feel. She does some figurative work, but never feels limited to it. Joyce paints abstract pieces with the same amount of colorful love.
