Joyce is a Dutch-Canadian artist, art therapist, and nurse living in West Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Her artwork draws upon her love of all things nautical; diverse interludes such as illustrating in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at BC Children’s Hospital; and, courtroom illustrations at the Air India Trial in Vancouver.


Her main muse pushes her pen and ink envelope inspiring a wide range of subject matter from painted wild horses, vintage heavy duty mechanical equipment to birds of prey.


Her inspiration to draw and paint continues to evolve and enrich the lives of those around her dans le monde.
