Debra Joyce Studio is the business name and nom du peintre of Artist Debra McGlinchie. The Name Joyce is an homage to my paternal Grandmother Genevieve Joyce McGlinchie (always known as Joyce) who was a woman of incredible strength and forthrightness – who was in life always my greatest supporter & still a great influence. I have had a lifelong passion for art and design and have worked as a Fashion designer, in House and Garden Design, Graphic Design, Visual Display and completed studies & practise in an array of Creative and Technical Disciplines. Late in 2015 I moved to an idyllic island and have been slowly renovating a Queenslander cottage (which I have named “Plumeria” after one of my favourite flowers and subjects), creating the surrounding garden (planted with a multitude of Plumeria) and focusing on my painting – pursuing my dream to paint & create full time. I’m currently producing large and small vibrant canvases focused around flowers, fruit and my day to day observations – celebrating the often unnoticed Beauty and Symbolism in the everyday – also a series of icons featuring creative women – but welcome commissions on most subjects. I derive a great deal of joy from painting & hope my works bring joy to the viewer too. Hop onto my Instagram or Facebook pages to join me on my creative journey.
