Goyce was a member of Keewaywin First Nation, who lived and worked as an educator in Thunder Bay, Ontario. He began to paint as a teenager under the instruction of his brother-in-law, Norval Morrisseau and later under the eye of Carl Ray. Together with his brothers Henry and Joshim in 1973, Goyce opened the Triple-K Co-operative. Under this banner, the brothers made silk screen prints featuring both their own art and that of other rising stars in the Woodlands School in an effort to decrease First Nations dependency on non-native publishers.
Goyce had exhibitions of his work throughout Canada and internationally, and his works are available in many fine galleries across Canada, including here at Darlington Gallery.
