Lawrence's paintings are truly a reflection
of the subtle beauty of her environment. 
As a native of the Jersey Shore, the back bays, marshes and coastline are some of her favorite subjects.  Both her landscapes and still life
seem to pull out the glowing contrasts between light, shadow and color.  She draws upon these contrasts to reveal the subtleties of nature to the viewer.  It is her intention to capture a moment
in time that will not only visually inspire
but physically touch one's spirit.

Joyce has taught at various art centers in New Jersey and has won numerous awards and honors for her work.  Her paintings have graced the covers of books and magazines and can be found in many public and private collections thoughout the US and Europe. 

Lawrence currently exhibits her limited edition prints at her Lakeside Gallery in Tuckerton, NJ. She has also been represented by The Gross McCleaf Gallery, Philadelphia, PA, The M.T. Burton Gallery, Surf City, NJ, The Swain Gallery, Plainfied, NJ. and Gallerie Hippocamp, St. Jean Cap Ferrat, France.
