About The Artist
My name is Joia and I am an artist and overall creative from the DMV area. My passion for art started as a child, drawing portraits for family members, homemade cards for my parents, and flip books of Courage the Cowardly Dog. I started to take art seriously when I was 15, creating a portrait of Queen Nefertiti. Since then, I became influenced by life experiences and dreams to guide my subject matters for my artwork; creating my own reality. I use my brush to create worlds based on the way life flows and pulls me in every direction. As I go through life, each experience shapes my livelihood and through art, I would like for those who support me to take this journey with me!
