Artist CV

Born by the Mediterranean sea, in La Ciotat, South of France, surrounded by mimosas trees laden with the winter snow, of a texan scriptwriter/inventor and fine art painter/sculptor mother from Norway, who soon returned to Paris, Joyce jocelyne Saunders-diop started painting at the age of 4 and has now been living and practicing her Art in LONDON for the longest part of her life. Having established her first studio there in 1986, she has been constantly developing her Art and her Brand in the British capital and abroad every since.

Very skilled at painting, drawing and designing in a variety of styles, media and techniques (digitally with softwares such as 'Photoshop', 'Illustrator', 'QuarkXpress', 'Indesign', 'Director', 'Dreamweaver', 'Word', 'Excel' and 'Power Point', 'Final Cut Pro X', 'iStopFrame', for Mac or PC), she can manage time, prioritize and speak in public when prepared. She has taught and instructed others, mainly on a one-to-one basis, and has had a great willingness to learn at a tangent to her life-long fine-art practice, in a late bout of study, during a 10 years effort to expand the scope of her practice. Creative and resourceful, she has supervised and lead others on her art related projects and knows how to work towards long term goals. Years of financial struggle as an artist have also taught her to be economical most of the time, a most useful asset management style when working in the Arts, as a trade in for the most valuable commodity of all, Time, as well as a recipe for the gradual and incremental growth of assets, knowledge and skills. She likes accuracy and is attentive to detail, can analyse, edit written material, conduct surveys and carry out research. Bilingual in French and English, she also possesses a foundation in verbal and written Spanish.

She has travelled to the USA where a large part of her family resides, in particular, California and Texas, throughout Europe in Wales, Scotland, Ireland, Belgium, Holland, Denmark, Germany and Switzerland, Spain, Portugal, but also to the African continent, in Morocco, Zimbabwe and Senegal, as well as more recently, in the Asian part of the world, Sri-Lanka.

However, the cultural diversity and riches of London's 'melting pot' provides her with the ultimate 'citizen of the world's experience, and leaves her quite content with a comparatively small carbon footprint

Rambles in London's superb parks, greenbelt and occasionally beyond are favorites.
