JOYCE RINGROSE studied at Bournemouth College of Art and continued to paint while bringing up her family. At 44 she gained a B.Ed (Hons) degree at La Sainte Union College, Southampton in Art and Ceramics followed by 5 years full-time tutoring. She gave up teaching to establish a Pottery until 1995 when she returned to painting and began exhibiting her work.
Joyce’s current work is largely concerned with coastal landscape. The cliffs, quarries, beaches and harbours of Dorset, Devon and Cornwall are a constant source of inspiration. From on-the-spot studies, acrylic paintings are developed in the studio.
