Christopher Joyce was born in Corner Brook, NL and has made Halifax his home. Chris has used a variety of art-making approaches since his graduation from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design in 1989. He is known for his work as a printmaker, a furniture designer and maker, a graphic designer, a painter, and a mixed media artist. The diversity of his interests does not preclude excellence, as his work in each of these areas is found in collections world-wide. Over time, Chris’ interest has moved from the process-orientated forms of lithography, concrete and metal, into painting. He brings to painting his deep interest in the qualities of material. His current images explore aerial landscapes, highway scapes and explorations that emerge from his graphic design background. His ingenuity in the visual arts has been instrumental in the development of a successful high-end interior furnishings business in Halifax. In 1998 he won the Prominence of Design Award at the first Atlantic Craft Trade Show Awards and in the December 2006 issue of House & Home magazine ranked him as one of the top twenty up and coming designers in Canada.
