A Birthright trip that changed Joy’s life. While in Israel, she was captivated by the landscape, culture and history. When Joy returned home, she felt a stronger connection to Israel, my culture and my identity as an artist. This journey profoundly changed her perspective and led her to discover her true passion.
Joy attended Tyler School of Art, Temple University, in Elkins Park, Pennsylvania where she received her BFA in Metals. She has continued her education with summer workshops at Penland School of Crafts, Haystack Mountain School of Crafts and Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts. Joy shares that she has also been influenced by her father, a talented fine jewelry designer, who has mentored her in design, craftsmanship and business.
