I am an artist and illustrator, with a love for all things floral, folk, and fiber art.

I believe my artwork reflects who I am and what I am attracted to in life. I see the world in an array of colors, even on the greyest of days. A bouquet from someone you love, almost has a sparkle to it. And the worlds we create in our dreams, our gardens, and our homes, give us a looking glass into our lives that we can only describe through art. 

My official bio:

Joy Laforme is a self-taught artist and illustrator. Born and raised in the Hudson Valley, she eventually settled in a quiet town outside of NYC with her husband and their cat. Joy studied Computer Science and Studio Art at Messiah College but her passion has always been illustration and design. She went on to achieve her Master of Arts degree in Graphic & Interactive Design from the Savannah College of Art and Design. It was while studying at SCAD that she felt a calling to become a full time artist. 

Her time spent in the garden with her Mother, and her Mother's love for all things American folk art has heavily influenced her artwork.  

Joy works from her home studio in New Jersey. She works in a variety of mediums to achieve her aesthetic including gouache, acrylic paints, and digital illustration.
