The Richard Hagen Gallery Richard Hagen Fine Art: established 1970

Peter Joyce

A contemporary English painter, born in 1964 in Poole, Dorset, Joyce gained a diploma in Art & Design in 1982 from the Bournemouth & Poole College of Art & Design. He gained a BA (hons) degree in Fine Art & History of Art at Stourbridge College of Technology and Art in 1985.

As well as exhibiting his own work, Joyce also went on to teach art at The Arts Institute at Bournemouth. He taught, amongst other things, the Diploma in Fine Art/Advanced Fine Art course from 1995-2002. Joyce took up the prestigious position of President of the Bournemouth Arts Club from 1998 to 2008.

Joyce's work is centred around abstract portrayals of natural, ecological and geographical themes. Producing images that spark the imagination, he is a wonderful observer and interpreter of the nature around him.

Now living in Bouin, Vendee, Western France, the change of location has stretched Joyce's imagination to create surprisingly different work, from those previously experienced.
