The Artisan Group is proud to announce this week's Artist Spotlight feature is one of our fine art photography members, Joy St. Claire!
Oh, Joy Photography
We caught up with Joy and asked her a few questions about her fine art photography portfolio, and her experiences so far working with TAG. Here's what she said:
- Tell us a little bit about your shoppe. My shops in Etsy and Society 6 feature my fine art photography. My Etsy shop also features my work on fine art note cards and on upcycled/recycled locket sets in collaboration with Cat Ivans of Polarity. The most common feedback I receive from those viewing my shop is that my work feels happy! Much of my art features natural landscapes and garden scenes processed to emote what I feel when I am out in nature or among the flowers – calm, serene, a little part of a bigger whole, and happy!
- What is your favorite product in your shoppe and why? My favorite items feature my dog and muse Maggie May! Maggie came to me at a difficult time in my life, & I for her. I really feel that we rescued each other. She is the perfect willing model working only for hotdogs or cheese!
- When you're not taking gorgeous photographs, what are your hobbies? When not taking photographs and working my magic on them, I can be found hunting through thrift stores for vintage cameras or other vintage goodies. I also enjoy knitting, hiking wild trails with Maggie May, reading a good book and spending time in my flower and vegetable gardens. And, of course I love wandering along the beaches of Lake Michigan!
- What do you like best about The Artisan Group? I joined The Artisan Group for the amazing opportunities to gift celebrities. But, I have been pleasantly surprised by the creative & very supportive community the group offers! It is part cheerleading squad, part business boot camp and part creative inspiration. I feel blessed to be a part of this amazing team!
