In Loving Memory of Joyce Eirwen Griffiths





Joyce Eirwen Griffiths was a Gower-based artist who worked in a variety of media. This web site is now dedicated to the memory of dear Joyce, who died in October 2011 after a very long and sad illness.



The site contains a selection of Joyce's works in all types of media, produced over many many years. These pictures - and all other information on the site - may be displayed by using the menu links at the bottom of the page.


Click on Pictures to look at the selection. The first IMAGE INDEX page will open in a new window pane. Click on any image to open it as a full size picture. Then use the arrows on that page to step back-and-forth through the whole gallery.


Brief details of Joyce's life and of her exhibitions between 2001 and 2006 are listed under Biography.


At the Kenfig National Nature Reserve, there is now a Memorial Picnic Table with a plaque. Please visit the Nature Reserve and sit at the table. Details may be found by clicking on the appropriate link below.



Memorial Exhibition at Kenfig Nature Reserve Visitor Centre

Between 2nd August 2012 and 15th December 2012, there was a Memorial Exhibition showing the majority of Joyce's few remaining original works in the Lecture Room of the Kenfig Nature Reserve Visitor Centre. This Memorial Exhibition was intended to display Joyce's enthusiasms, vision and talent in an appropriate public arena. Joyce's ashes were scattered near here.


The first picture was a notice telling viewers something about Joyce and her work. Unknown to us, this frame disappeared from the display within a few days of the exhibition's opening. Thus, for the remaining four months of the exhibition, passing visitors saw merely a set of unexplained paintings. They had no idea of what the exhibition was about - no idea about the artist and her life. The notice had disappeared without trace - and in this mirrored the fate of many of Joyce's original works. This action rendered the exhibition in large measure pointless.


As a consequence of this act of sabotage, the notice is now displayed permanently below. Please read it. And if - between January 2011 and December 2011 - you acquired one of Joyce's original works, please do contact us. We are prepared to buy them from you, as explained.
