I am a painter and graphic designer from Prince George’s County, Maryland. My work is a reflection and statement of my personal experiences in life and in the lucid state of my dreams. My background as a painter influences my compositions and color choices within my graphic design work—it is all connected. Throughout my career, I have had the luxury of designing for many brands and serving as a visual advocate, aiming to bring visions to life. In addition to my design background, I have held a position as a Digital Marketing Manager, CEO of my own company artbyjoia LLC, and as an Administrative Assistant for more than 5 years. I love poetry, and have self-published two books of my writings, and have an online book club. Art is apart of everything that I do.
