Below, a small mural takes shape on the wall of the Nostalgia Gifts shop in downtown Melbourne, Florida. One of Joyce's most ambitious projects to date is a 16'x14' living room wall at a house in Melbourne. Below are a few shots of the in-progress work. Click here to see the full gallery of pictures. Below, a 2002 project in Rockledge, Florida. To see the entire before-and-after home, click here. This dining room started with white walls and carpet. It was redecorated with hardwood flooring, a two-toned gold sponged paint-job, a Roman-style stone arch with a view of an Italian village and mountains, marbelized pillars, and a complementary window treatment.

Below, a simple stone wall mural was added to give this wall some character. The vase, with plant hanging on the wall, adds a bit of a Trompe L'oeil flavor. At left shows the mural in context of the room, center shows a more vertical view of the wall, and the right draws closer in toward the mural.

The Manatee Project was done on concrete block of a Florida room in Orlando. The owner wanted some very large Manatees, plus whatever the artist decided to add to the scene. We ended up with two large Manatees, one medium, and one small, with several schools of colorful little fish, coral, seaweed, and sunbeams. Click either photo to view the complete project.
The Agnew patio in Melbourne, Florida involved first covering the white walls with a soft golden color, then adding a mural and some Trompe L'oeil designs to liven up the decor. The results include Palm trees, vines, and some broken concrete blocks. Click either photo to view the complete project.

Later, Joyce decided to modify the mural slightly, replacing the vase with a Venetian scene that extended into the upper portion of the wall. Below are two views of the new mural.
