Joyce Oates

As the retired postmaster of USPS in Prosperity, S. C., I now have the time to pursue my passion for painting. I paint mainly in oil, but also use acrylics and watercolors when needed. I have been commissioned to paint portraits, murals, and landscapes. I enjoy painting Lake Murray water birds (ducks, Canadian geese, egrets, and blue herons).

I have entered and sold paintings in the S.C. State Fair Art Exhibit. As a member of Chapin Crooked Creek Art League, I was an award winner several years in their Annual Art Exhibits & Juried Shows. I have painted murals in homes and in our church. I paint on commission for portraits of children, pets, bridal couples, and portraits from photos of old homes and family members. My work is hanging locally in Newberry, Prosperity, Chapin, and Little Mountain galleries.
