“If I want my work to appear otherworldly or beyond replication it is because I want to describe things that I feel are. The only things to transcend replication are the indescribable instances of true beauty and love, present in each human soul. Knowing this, artists can only hope that their work becomes a reminder and a shell-like vehicle for these elusive, exquisite and transient energies. I just happen to like beautiful shells. There’s no magic but love.”

his creation is my inspiration.

    "I came across Joy's work a couple years ago when started my own photography page on myspace. I loved everything about her style and frequently check for new photos ever since the first time I saw her work. With her talent especially at such a young age she is going far. Her style is so soft and beautiful. She definitely stands out from the crowd with her unique ways of capturing life around her. Such a fitting name, Breath of Life. She is an inspiration."

    "joy's photography is so hard to describe.
    mostly because words can't explain how much creativity is put into her photos.
    i don't think she realizes how talented she is.
    i know she knows she is, but, she is like ten thousand times more than she thinks.
    i find joy so inspirational and her photographs give me reason to believe in God again.

    thank you, joy.
    i wish you love and happiness, and beauty."
