Joyce Trygg was born at Cross Roads, Country Harbour in Nova Scotia. She drew constantly throughout her childhood and majored in art in high school. While she raised her family she attended Douglas College where she drew, painted, sculpted and studied Art History. She drew and painted animals as a hobby, especially studies of horses, dogs and cats.
She now lives with her husband on a horse farm in Fort Langley, B.C., surrounded by domestic animals, and occasionally, deer, coyotes, hawks, eagles and black bears.
In 1998 she began painting seriously and attending workshops with well-known local and international artists.
Although animals are her primary subjects, Joyce also loves to paint some of the beautiful details encountered in everyday things, capturing the familiar in new and unexpected ways.
In 2010 Joyce was selected by the B.C. Wildlife Federation as the B.C. Wildlife Artist of the Year.
In 2014 she was one of twelve artists invited to represent Canada at the “Fabriano In Acquarello 2014”, an international artistic convention, and she was invited back to participate in 2015.
Joyce is a Signature Member of Artists for Conservation.
Works by Joyce Trygg have now been exhibited and sold in Canada, the USA and Europe.
