NgandiDate of birth
Joyce has had no formal art training – her natural style is at times gentle and reflective, presenting images of whirlpools in billabongs and country wildflowers. She has developed her style from a passion for colour and from watching her elders paint. The Huddleston family name has long been associated with talented artists, and many in Joyce’s family, including her mother Gertie Huddleston, have achieved major recognition for their work. Joyce has been painting at Ngukurr Arts since 2000 and travels out to her Mother’s Country to reconnect with her culture and stories and to find inspiration for her work.
