Joyce L. Ledingham

I was born, raised and educated in Ontario, Canada, moving to the United States in the sixties. After retirement in the corporate world as Comptroller/Business Manager of a large Insurance Agency in Beverly Hills, I moved to St. Simons Island in 1995. Immediately I got involved in volunteer work with the Arts. I have helped to paint sets for more than 40 plays, and with my Graphic Design background, I design and develop the playbills/programs for the theatre and others. I am an oil painter and I have studied art for the past twelve years. In 2002, I served a three year term on the Glynn Art Board, two as President and one as Vice-President. My passion for the Arts has me volunteering and serving on the Glynn Art Board of Directors again in 2008. I chaired the "Garden Art Party" fund raiser at Ace Gardens in November 2008. My art has been shown in the following Galleries: Goad Gallery, Paul Patterson Gallery, Eclectic Cottage, The Hospital's new wing, The Library… downtown Brunswick, Art Downtown Gallery, Glynn Art, Goodyear Cottage on Jekyll Island, Oak Grove Island's annual Art Show and the Heritage Golf Club monthly.
