Joy grew up in New York's Hudson Valley. She's always enjoyed painting and illustrating. She spent much of her time in the garden with her Mom - learning about the way a honeybee's wings look like they glow when they hover over the mint, or the way the back of a yellow finch looks like stained glass, and the way johnny jump ups dance in the wind.
Joy attended Messiah College, and then the Savannah College of Art and Design. She started pursuing a freelance career in 2013.
Joy's current body of work includes illustrations for stationery, fabric & textiles, book interiors and book covers, and personal artwork. Joy's aesthetic aims to give homage to American folk art and naive art. She loves working in nature-inspired color palettes.
She works from her home studio in New Jersey, in a small town right outside of New York City. She is a digital maker. She uses a variety of mediums to achieve her aesthetic.
