My name is Joy Cherie. I worked as a wedding & portrait photographer for 7 years and while fun, the call of artist was far too strong to suppress. I removed myself from all forms of social media, sat at my desk with a pencil, a paintbrush and several cameras... and listened.

The unfolding of where I am is a result of what I heard.

I heard to be still.

I heard to be silent.

I heard to find light in the darkness

beauty in the ashes

and to live in the reconciled tension between the two.

It is my hope that this space will be a haven of rest for the both of us. That together we can learn to wipe away the dust off of the silent corners of our hearts and minds and find the space to consider the dark, discover the always new and ever impending morning and celebrate the joy that we find.
