Joyce Kingman is an active watercolor artist. In the 1980’s she discovered watercolor and her love of it was instantaneous. She enjoys the spontaneity and freedom in this creative process. Living in both New Hampshire and Palm Desert, California, she sees beauty all around her. It’s exploring and defining these exciting settings that she loves. She’s a romanticist and she likes to see the scenes that she paints in the best possible light—literally speaking.

It’s the shadows and contrasts that give so much feeling to the paintings. Joyce does florals and landscapes as well as scenes from her travels to other countries but particularly enjoys doing architecture. She has done many commissions of homes and city buildings that hang throughout the USA and England.


She has studied with Hal Reed in Los Angeles , Zoltan Szabo, Gerald Brommer, Don O'Neill and Don Andrews as well as local teachers in New Hampshire and California. She has also taken watercolor classes at the Sharon Art Center, the Manchester Institute of the Fine arts and Sciences, and the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston.


Joyce is a member of the NH Art Association, The Keyes Art Group, Nashua Area Art Association and is an Associate Member of the New England Watercolor Society. In California, she is a member of the Desert Art Center in Palm Springs and the Coachella Valley Watercolor Society, (CA). She has been in many juried shows and received numerous awards in both New England and California. Her paintings have been published in a National Magazine as well as on the covers of the regional magazines.


She lives with her husband in Palm Desert, California. During the summer months she travels to New Hampshire as well as other inspirational locations.
