Joyce Winslow studied painting and design at the Otis Art Institute in Los Angeles. She developed her silkscreen technique under the mentorship of noted serigrapher Guy MacCoy, who is credited with first introducing silkscreen as an art form in the 1930s.
Some of the prints in this collection were first exhibited in one-person shows in Germany (at the Gallery L. Saussele in Bietigheim-Bissingen and the University of Stuttgart) in the 1980s. Winslow was a charter member of the Northwest Print Council, which was founded by Gordon Gilkey while he was curator of prints and drawings for the Portland Art Museum. Under the auspices of the Print Council, her prints were included in traveling exhibitions throughout the U.S. and around the world.
Winslow prints are represented in the private collection of actor Jack Nicholson. Her work is reviewed in the 1989 edition of the California Art Review and in the 1990 edition of American Artists, An Illustrated Survey of Leading Contemporaries. She is included in the archives of the National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington, D.C.
