Joyce Fournier with her completed portrait of 'Christine'

Biography

 

Joyce Fournier is a Toronto Portrait  Artist who categorises her work as a combination of Impressionism and Contemporary Realism executed in several media to include oil, acrylic, and charcoal.  While drawing and painting the human form is her first passion, Joyce often finds it exciting to revisit the Landscape, her original artistic interest.  

Over the last decade Joyce has exhibited in several solo and group shows within Canada and internationally.  She recently returned from Hamburg, Germany where her works were part of the 2017 summer program at  Marziart Internationale Galerie

In 2016 Joyce was selected as a finalist in the Portrait Society of America's annual Members Only Competition in the landscape category She is the recipient of an Award of Excellence from Art Domain Gallery as part of the 2008 Palm Art Award Exhibition for her work ‘In Blue’, Leipzig Germany and most recently a second place Prize of Excellence for ART NOW 3 - The 3rd Annual Juried Contemporary Art Online Competition /Exhibition 2008-2009 from Artoteque based London England for her work ‘The Promise’.

Joyce’s Landscapes, Figurative works and commissioned portraits are found in private and public collections in Canada, the USA, and Europe.   Her work has been featured on several occasions in the prestigious American Art Collector magazine since 2009
