About the Artist
Lake Tahoe artist Joyce Major combines her passion for the outdoors with an equal passion for creating art. She draws artistic inspiration from the spectacular alpine scenery of the Lake Tahoe region where she snowshoes, skis, hikes and kayaks. Her back country landscape photography inspires her paintings.
I attribute the unique characteristics of my work to my lifelong love of the outdoors and my scientific background. I tend to look much closer and longer at things than most people. The scene captures my initial interest, but it is the flooding of my senses - with light, smell, heat/cold, color, sound, form, composition - that holds me and keeps me obsessed throughout the painting process. So much so, that I always dream about my paintings while I am creating them. Hence, the name Dreamscapes.
