Hi Joyce - wonderful to meet you and your wonderful spouse this past weekend in Hagerstown. Mary and I enjoyed your company, learning many new things and hopefully earned new friends.

It is always amazing to me that I seem to only learn of artists through some act of serendipity. I am thrilled to have finally learned of the beauty and intellect of Joyce Owens.

Juarez recently made me aware of your web site as an example of a well constructed and effective site. So glad she did! I appreciate your art even more because I've seen more. Keep Monroe working on the kitchen rehab so that he can create dishes that inspire you. I'm looking to add one or more of your pieces to my/my wife's budding collection. When Juarez finishes my new logo and corporate identity items, I keep you informed. I'm looking to one day soon represent emerging or "under-renown, under-known, under-valued, under-appreciated" contemporary African American artists. Are you entered in "Gallery D'Estee" this March?

Met you during the National Alliance Conference in St. Louis (I'm the one with the silver sculpture-like ear rings). So glad I looked at your site. Your work is fantastic. Hope we can keep in touch.

Really beautiful, the style has a 1940ish feel. It is a feeling I get from the colors and the clothing. I love your pallette. kim

Hello Joyce: I met you on March 19, 2000 at a mutual friends home. You sketched a picture of me and my husband that evening and they are two of the most precious portraits I possess. When I look in my husband's eyes, I see just how much he loves me. You captured that for me .... I am forever grateful to you. Diane

Hello Joyce, I spoke with you in the stairwell @ School on Monday and you invited me to sit in on your class next semester. I just wanted to say that looking at your artwork (the spirit series) makes me think of my grandmother. They evoke smells, dialog, and sounds of the south. Thank You, JRS

Jackie R. United States | Dec 8, 2009

Joyce, Your work is such an inspiration! I found you navigating through Chicago art networks and starting reading your blogs. I sat for a good while and read many of your posts and they all are so enlightening! Thank you for being you and doing YOU - I have learned so much simply taking in your insight. Love your work! The full-length portraits are so warm and emotional. May God continue to use you...
