Eyes of the Forest - Red Fox

B.C. Wildlife Federation Artist of the Year 2010

Joyce entered a competition sponsered by the B.C. Wildlife Federation and her image of a young red fox won first place. She was awarded B.C. Wildlife Federation Artist of the Year 2010!

Joyce Trygg

Joyce Trygg was born in a small town on Nova Scotia's eastern shore and now resides on acreage near Fort Langley, B.C. with her husband and their dogs, cats and horses.

As a child she surrounded herself with every animal she could fit on the small city lot where she lived. These animals were her first "models". Joyce drew consistently through her childhood and art was one of her majors in high school. When her two children were in school, Joyce attended Douglas College where she drew, painted, sculpted and studied Art History. Family kept Joyce busy for many years, although there was always time to do a charcoal portrait of a child, horse or dog.

In 2000, Joyce traveled to Montana to the Beartooth School of Art for a workshop with internationally acclaimed wildlife artist Terry Isaac. She was hooked. Since then she has painted with and learned so much from Terry, Paco Young, Daniel Smith, John Banovich and the amazing John Seerey-Lester.

Joyce's paintings reflect her love and empathy for domestic animals and the awe of the magnificent wildlife she feels privileged to see.

In 2010, Joyce was proud to be selected by the B.C. Wildlife Federation as the B.C. Wildlife Artist of the Year.

Although animals are her primary subject matter, Joyce also loves to paint the beautiful details of everyday things in her life, hopefully showing the familiar in new and unexpected ways.

Joyce belongs to: Artists for Conservation; West Fine Arts Shows; and Federation of Canadian Artists

Joyce is very excited to announce she will be exhibiting her paintings at the Kube Gallery in Fort Langley B.C.
