Originally from Missouri, Joyce Hinkle moved down to Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, in 1973. This meant she was able to spend a lot of time at the beach taking in the sandy, palm-filled landscapes.
Hinkle likes to draw her inspiration from nature and from pictures she takes during her travels. So far she’s been to the Bahamas, St Croix, Mexico, Canada, France, Corsica, Italy, and most of the United States. Each time she returns to pour her inspiration into her artwork.
