Joyce Dant - Artist Statement

Joyce Dant has been a southwestern landscape artist for more than 30 years. She holds a degree in Fine Art from Texas Tech University and has developed her unique style of painting in oils and acrylics through extensive painting trips and studies with various outstanding American landscape artists. She has been featured in articles in SouthwestArt, Art of the West, and Inform Art.

The scenery of northern New Mexico provides a rich source of inspiration for Dant, who is drawn to rugged rock formations, canyons, water, and the play of sunlight and shadow across the textures and rich colors of the landscape. She also paints the ancient Indian ruins of the Southwest and detailed florals of cactus, hollyhock, and yucca blooms.

Dant has hiked Grand Canyon, rafted the Colorado River, and trekked on horseback to Keet Seel Ruin in northern Arizona to photograph, to sketch, and to experience these scenes. Frequent painting trips in New Mexico, Utah, and Arizona allow Dant to paint on location. "I love plein air painting," Joyce says. "The fresh air is invigorating; the colors are more subtle than any photograph can convey; the light is constantly changing, and I am capturing an impression of a moment. I want you to smell the earth and feel the breeze when you look at my paintings."

Dant’s most recent works are inspired by old machines, rusting earth-moving machinery, and vintage vehicles done in a photo-realist style in acrylics.
