The Artist Joyce Jonte’ fine artist

Born in Berkeley, California in 1957, I grew up in the Bay Area, moving to Arcata in 1974 to study art at HSU. I graduated in 1979 with emphases in watercolor painting, representational drawing, and life drawing. I have pursued a passionate study of watercolor technique and life drawing in the ensuing decades, establishing myself as a valued member of the local art community.

I facilitate the Arcata Life Drawing Circle ( with artist friend Steven VanderMeer at StewART Studios in Arcata. I spend up to 12 hours weekly in life drawing sessions, honing my skills and encouraging local artists of all ages. I work en plein aire in the summer months and from photos in the winter, describing the natural beauty that surrounds us.

I am available for commission and have an open studio by appointment. Follow me on Instagram @joycejonte, on Facebook, and at
