Mark Joyce is a native of Connemara, living and working in nearby Recess. Mark is a versatile artist, alternating between painting, ceramics and sculpture. His paintings have an illustrative quality and have been selected for the annual Clifden Arts Week poster. Marks ceramics are humourous and unconventional, reflecting his colourful personality. His large sculpture ‘The Connemara Giant’ can be viewed opposite Joyce’s craft shop in Recess, also managed by Mark.
