About Me

Hello World!

I'M Joy Ann

Welcome to my creative space... let's experience the world through painting & collage! 

I was one of those kids who drew on the walls at home.  Art was always my favorite subject in school. But since then it has grown from just being something I did, into someWAY I AM.  

 My art springs from a deep love of nature, people & animals, music, poetry & dance.  I have been part of many group & solo exhibits in the Philippines, the UK and here in the USA.  My work is featured in private collections locally & internationally.

I teach Drawing & Watercolor in-person and online, and teach Origami workshops too.  

You may notice that my paintings feature origami... my way of marrying paper sculpture and painting together.  It's different, and always fun to see what can happen!

I'm thrilled to share my art with everyone online.  

My art business has been designated as a "Trusted Art Seller" with The Art Storefronts Organization, which means you can shop with confidence, and know that I stand behind the quality and value of my artwork.
