Joyce Brown is the director of Flamingo Clay Studio – Clay, Glass, Metal and Stone Gallery in Lake Worth, Florida. Her earliest childhood memories include drawing on the walls, the floor and even her own body at every opportunity. She felt compelled to decorate whatever was at hand. Joyce’s father gave her a set of oil paints which she used to create copies of the artworks that were hung in her home. She painted copies of Covarrubias, Picasso, Renoir and Degas. Her interest in art continued to grow and she earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts as well as a Master of Education/Master of Fine Arts from Temple University, Tyler School of Fine Arts.
Joyce shared her love for fine arts through her many years of teaching students of all ages and abilities, holding Certifications for Teacher of Art K-12 and Teacher of Neurologically Impaired and Brain Injured Children.
She also was a member of the Germantown Pottery Guild for over 35 years, where she developed a heart for social conscience. She sees artistic expression in all of life, and uses her creativity and experience to create businesses and organizations which use art to support peace and social justice issues. Joyce says, “When [these] issues took precedence…, I marched and marched making buttons and posters to enhance the efforts of the movement[s]”. Some of her pet projects over the years include Swords into Plowshares, The Blushing Zebra (a non-profit coffee house), Germantown Women’s Y, and WISDOM – Education of Women with HIV/AIDS.
