Joyce Jonté:

"Born in Berkeley, California in 1957, I moved to Arcata from the Bay Area in 1974 to study art at HSU, graduating in 1979 with emphases in representational drawing, landscape painting, and life drawing. I have pursued a passionate study of watercolor technique over the ensuing years. I am well known in Northern California for my figurative and floral works.

I facilitate the Arcata Life Drawing Circle at StewART Studios in Arcata (drawing.nu) which meets three times a week. I work as an art educator in local schools and at my studio at StewART Studios."
