Hi there! Welcome.

She has been working and traveling to different cities,

such as Taiwan, New York, Vancouver ( SIGGRAPH 2014 ) and San Francisco.

As a visual artist, Joy considers art as a means to convert imagination into reality.

Her work emphasizes the usage of color and positive spirit,

giving the audience a sense of happiness and a temporary illusion of escaping real life.
