Deeply connected to her Southern roots, Joy’s images reveal her endless intrigue with Georgia heritage and culture, mainly its sea islands and their dynamically stable surroundings. It serves as an ongoing inspiration for creating photographs that capture and reemphasize the importance of history and preservation of volatile places. Driven by an inherent love and beauty of her birthright, her images convey the natural through technology and back again with traditional mediums, principles and processes. Always exploring. Always experimenting. A graduate of the Savannah College of Art and Design, she has participated in several group exhibitions mainly at the Photopoint Gallery (Richmond Hill, GA), Location Gallery and the Telfair for the Arts (Savannah, GA). She is also Design Director at JOY Marketing.
