About the Artist

          Joyce began her art career in Alaska over 40 years ago at her kitchen table with the small easel and paint set from “ green stamps “ she saved. She won first place in the Alaska State Fair and Alaska grand champion.

       Relocating to Southern California Joyce focused on seascape painting and exhibited her work in the Santa Barbara Art Show. Wearing her roller skates and meeting people from all over the world who loved and bought her paintings. Ortner shared the things she learned by teaching classes and workshops in community centers, adult education classes , university extension programs and art stores across the country and in Alaska. She met Bob Ross, who was so impressed with her seascapes he invited her to appear on his show as a guest artist. The success of these videos in 24 countries around the world made Joyce a popular and sought-after teacher.
