Joyce is a versatile graphic designer with a creative approach to all things. She has worked on diverse projects ranging from logo, web design, packaging and even some confectionary design for many startup businesses in Olympia.

Olympia is a unique place in that there are many people who “go for their dreams” starting businesses, creating products, and opening food establishments. I have been part of many small business concepts helping them create their brand. You may recognize my work at Prime 1889 Steakhouse, i.talia pizzeria, Ruby Street Quiltworks, Tanasse Chiropractic, Lucky Devil Farms, Candela Display Systems, Craft 19 (Sumner, WA).

After graduating from college, she worked for a porcelain sign company where she started as an illustrator and moved up to art director, managing clients and projects through the proprietary production process. Clients included the National Park Service, BLM, many museums/aquariums, and some retail.

If you have spent any time on the trail in Washington or Southeastern Oregon, you may have come across interpretive signage with illustrations I created.

Joyce had a freelance business for 15 years affording her the time to raise her son. At that time her clients, also diverse, ranged from event invitations to cottage food branding.

Oddly, I enjoy cleaning and organizing. I find it meditative. It’s a good thing too because my husband Kevin and I have a working dog who, let’s just say, doesn’t know how to wipe her feet.

My goal is not necessarily vacationing the world, but to create vacation in my home.

My son, Duncan and his fiancé, Kirin light up my world when we do ANYTHING together.

I am an artist who works primarily in colored pencil.

Sometimes simplicity is complex.
