Joyce Reid, Flip Flops & What Knots
Originally from Southern Maryland, Colonial Beach VA is now my home. I have always been a crafter who took every opportunity to create. After moving to the beach, I began to explore my artistic side. I am inspired by the beauty around me on the Potomac River and throughout the Northern Neck of Virginia.
I utilize a multitude of materials, from crushed mirrors, sea glass, driftwood, and scraps of stained glass. To found treasures like napkin rings and broken jewelry ,that I seal in resin. I love to turn cast offs, scraps and bits into something new and showcase their beauty. Giving a new purpose to objects that would otherwise be discarded. I recently started painting on glass, then embellishing with glass beads. I find it very relaxing.
My art is a journey and I look forward to watching it flow outward into the world.
