can i still call it a find, if i already mentioned this lady before? maybe i cannot, but i love her work so much that i cannot, nor want to resist. i met joy st. claire through flickr quite a while ago and her story moved me. asides from all the personal aspects of her story, she had a love in her life, maggie, her dog. and they both lived counting on each other’s love to keep going… until one day that maggie got sick, and to get better, joy had a huge vet bill to pay. so by that time i decided to help her and spread the word here in order to let the world know that by buying a print you’d be already helping!
fortunately those moments are already behind their back, they are still together and living quite happy! but joy still amazes me! she’s my colleague on society6, where we both have our work, and she’s one of the most popular artists there! and i can understand why, her work is magical, whimsical and everything in between… it’s like she’s able to capture nature at its best all the moments, whether is spring, summer, fall or cold winter. she can nail the colours, the textures, the perspective and add her special touch. joy is my find once again!
as usual, society6 is also very popular for the products they have for our art, such as iphone covers, laptop cases and most recently they have added stationery cards. so if you loved these images, go on and explore more of joy st. claire’s shop, because there is much more magic there!
