Joyce and her husband Kevin, live in the outskirts of Spillville, where they listen to Dvorak’s Scarlet Tanager in the evenings among the deer, and wild turkeys, along the banks of Wonder Creek, and the Turkey River. When the couple isn’t off golfing, or traveling to various art shows, or partaking in off the beaten path traveling around the United States for inspirational views; Joyce enjoys her second level “tree house” gazebo, where she spends time reading, and taking photographs. They also enjoy spending time with their grandchildren.
"I feel drawn to light. I’m very interested in capturing the different moods and seasons of change.”

Photography started out as a hobby in her midlife, and became a career with her first photo assignment from, “The Iowan” magazine in 2007. She then resigned as the librarian at South Winneshiek High School, in Calmar Iowa, to pursue a writing and photography career.
