Joyce Bressler

From my earliest days I can remember always wanting to be an artist and, in turn, an art teacher. I went to the High School of Music and Art and therefore had an extended background in all the creative arts. My next step was obtaining a Bachelor of Arts degree from Queens College, majoring in Art ad minoring in Education, and becoming a New York City art teacher.

 

I completed my Master of Art degree at UCLA. I continued teaching and always painted with was my first love. I have taught art on the junior and senior high school levels, in continuing education as well as privately. I have participated in many juried shows in New Your City and Long Island.

 

My watercolors are painted “alla prima,” that is, directly without pencil.  I want the colors to have spontaneity and crispness. Having been a textile designer at one time, I bring fabric into play, along with natural forms, such as plants, flowers or still life subjects. I am always after repetition, fluidity of design and unusual color combinations.

 

My landscapes attempt to capture light, mood and atmosphere found in the endless number of beautiful Long Island scenes.
