Since settling in Fredericton, New Brunswick, Victoria Moon Joyce has returned to her first career as an artist, focusing primarily on landscapes and studies around New Brunswick and Atlantic Canada. Moon is deeply in love with her country of birth and her paintings reveal both a depth of memory and fresh insight. She knows her country well, having lived in six provinces and worked in every province and territory. Addicted to the beauty of context and the magnetic pull of memory, her paintings are anchored in a credible and powerful depiction of place.
Moon is a graduate of the Fine Arts program at University of Waterloo where she studied painting and drawing with Tony Urquhart, among others. Her art training led to a rich and varied teaching career that spanned the country and three decades of interdisciplinary work as an artist, musician, Outward Bound educator and cultural worker. Moon complements her studio work with teaching art education courses at various institutions in Nunavut, New Brunswick and Ontario.
Currently, Moon is travelling and conducting research for the next phase in her artistic career, while expanding her choices of media and subject.
