Joyce Kamikura
     "My paintings represent my personal response to the environment. My ideas are not whole impressions but fragments of what fascinates me and are the seeds from which my works begin to develop. As a result, although they undoubtedly have roots in my daily life, they are a good deal removed from reality. Florals, landscapes and people continually captivate me. The medium and support of my expression vary depending on a combination of my mood and the mood the subject creates in and of itself within me. They both range from soft transparent watercolours to vibrant mixed media on paper; from gentle brush strokes and textures on maisonite to bold brush sweeps in oils and acrylics on canvas."
