Joyce’s work examines her connection to place, particularly wilderness and northern landscapes, usually within a context of global environmental concerns. Her past careers as a biologist and wilderness guide in the Yukon Territory, Canada have augmented and contributed to her artistic practice.

Primarily a printmaker, Joyce has morphed her monoprints and etched plates both into large scale installations and a variety of other forms including animation, books and sculpture.  She weaves text, photos and images into the layers of her monoprints on both paper and fabric.

Joyce has worked in print making studios internationally and has been invited to participate in projects or collaborations with artists in the UK, Russia and Mexico. During 2009 she organized and facilitated a series of residencies and an exhibition with artists from Canada and Mexico (the LLAMA project, website www.llamaproject.com).

Two large scale permanent public commissions, Winging North and River Walk can be seen in Whitehorse, each addressing specific environments. Recent exhibitions include Voz/Voice:the arts of resistance and resilience at the Yukon Arts Centre in Whitehorse and Symbiosis/Simbiosis in Pachuca, Hidalgo, Mexico.
Joyce lives in Whitehorse, Yukon, Canada. Visit her website www.joycemajiski.com
