From the Artist

Giclee Prints, Limited to Editions of Only 50 Impressions

Artist Joyce Clark our longtime friend and premier gallery artist. Joyce is known for her landscapes and "people-scapes" which seem to capture the wahi pana (special spiritual energy) of Hawaii. She makes excellent use of a palette knife in her work, literally sculpting the oil to give a three-dimensional feel to her paintings.

The "alphabet soup" designations after her name refer to Joyce Clark being a Signature Member of both the highly prestigious Oil Painters of America and the International Society of Marine Painters. Only a small handful of the thousands upon thousands of artists throughout the United States can claim this designation. And Joyce Clark certainly deserves this professional honor.

She was considered to be the "best" of Hana artists, having lived in rural Hana for nearly twenty years. Mrs. Clark moved back to Oregon to be near her children and grandchildren and passed away in 2 010. We were privileged to represent this internationally acclaimed artist for over Twenty - nine years.
