is an artist, author, and poet.
Her favourite medium being #aesthetics, she works as a freelancer and  manages Instagram for small businesses to put bread on the table.

She graduated in 2019 from the Ontario College of Art & Design University
with a drawing & painting major and a minor in Creative Writing. 

Author of Caterpillar Portraits, she writes to the childlike hearts of hungry & sensitive readers using unique metaphors to speak to/question the human condition & search for truth.

Having recently moved to Chicago, she is currently preparing to launch a YouTube channel, start a small line of cardboard jewelry, and produce a series of zines that come with food & seeds.

Current books Joyce is currently working on:

The Story of Onion.

(a picture book about dealing with poverty, bullying, & selfcare).

The Girl with Blue Hands.

(a graphic novel about a Korean girl with blue hands that heavily features biblical, fairy-tale, and Freudian undertones to tell a personal testimony)
