Debra Joyce's Gallery

Debra Joyce

Debra Joyce Studio is the business name & Debra Joyce the "nom de la peinture" of Artist Debra McGlinchie. The Name Joyce is an homage to her paternal Grandmother Genevieve Joyce McGlinchie (always known as Joyce). 

Debra has had a lifelong passion for art & design and has worked as a Fashion Designer, in House & Garden Design, Graphic Design, Visual Display and has completed studies & practise in an array of Creative & Technical Disciplines. 

Late in 2015 she moved to an idyllic island and has been slowly renovating a Queenslander cottage (which she have named "Plumeria" after one of her favourite flowers & subjects), creating the surrounding garden (planted with a multitude of Plumeria) & focusing on her painting - pursuing her dream to paint & create full time. 

Currently producing large & small vibrant canvases focused around flowers, fruit and her day to day observations - celebrating the often-unnoticed Beauty & Symbolism in the everyday & also series of nostalgic “Icons” celebrating Iconic Creative Women, featured on this site. She welcomes commissions on most subjects. 

She derives great joy from painting & loves sharing that joy with the viewer. Hop onto her Instagram or Facebook pages - Debra Joyce Studio - to join her on her creative journey.

Artist Statement

“I consider myself in a constant state of observation. I love to celebrate the oft overlooked beauty that surrounds us in our everyday lives by either stretching larger than life images across canvases that will envelope the viewer in their enthusiasm & evoke the senses or present unexpected views of commonly seen items of the world around us - the abundant forms and intoxicating fragrance of flowering plants, the luscious taste of plump ripened fruits, the rambunctious dance of a vibrant bouquet, micro multi-hued landscapes, iconic portraits etc. 

My focus is on expressive but cohesive Colour & Design within my paintings. 

Artists who have influenced me include the work of Impressionists particularly Monet & Van Gogh, Klimpt, Frida Khalo, Dali, Margaret Preston and too many others to mention!
