BEEVILLE – A love for painting and an extra unused garage space allowed Joyce Schultz to open an art gallery in her home two months ago.

She was already planning to enclose the garage as her new studio when she decided to make it a gallery as well.

“I just decided to try it,” she said.

Since opening the gallery, called Joyce’s Artwork, she has sold three paintings.

“I paint floral mostly because of the beauty of them,” she said. “I just love flowers.”

Flowers might be her favorite thing to paint, but she does have some variety to her work, and her favorite piece is not of a flower but rather an Indian. A print of the piece hangs in her gallery.

She said the original painting hangs in her brother’s house in Corpus Christi.

“It was so intricate,” Schultz said.

All of her work is painted with acrylics.

“I like the way it flows,” she said. “I like that medium over all the other mediums.”

She said that most of her work takes her three to fours days to complete, depending on the size of the piece, and she spends several hours each day painting.

Schultz said she has been painting for 16 years and started before she moved to Beeville. While most of her skills are self-taught, she has taken some classes from an artist in Kerrville.

Business has started a little slowly in her new gallery, but she is not going to let that deter her. She said she will keep her studio open and continue painting as long as she is in Beeville.

She has plans to make a sign for a gallery so it can be better seen from Business 181.

Joyce’s Artwork, located at 2 Shady Lane, is open Tuesday though Saturday.
