-- Born in Canada in 1980, Joyce Camilleri lived most of her childhood and adult life in her parents’ country of origin, Malta.
After completing her first degree in art teaching at the University of Malta, she felt the need to further her studies in the field of art and started attending an artistic printmaking diploma course at the Malta School of Art under the tuition of Mr Anton Grech. Meanwhile, she also pursued further training at the International Summer Academy of Fine Arts in Salzburg, through masterclass workshops with German artist Michael Morgner and most recently, with Austrian artist Tobias Pils.
Her work attempts to explore drawing and printmaking as distinct, nonetheless symbiotic art practices that both retain essentially graphical elements. Alongside, such artistic research enables her to constantly nourish and revisit her pedagogical approaches to art theory and practice.
