About the Artist

Joy StClaire is a fine art photographer from Central Ohio. Recently Joy’s work appeared on fine art calendars featured in the 2012 Golden Globes Gift Lounge. Joy’s passion for gardening and the magic of time spent on her grandfather’s farm, woods and seashore are evident in her work. Her unique imagery combines her life long passion for photography with her dream of being a painter. Joy’s greyhound lab, Maggie May, is her sometimes model a la William Wegman. Inspiration is drawn from nature, old faded photographs, wandering back roads, flowers and Story People. Her creations have been described as a lovely blending of photography and painting, appearing in Artful Blogging, TRAVERSE and Lake Superior magazines and on many websites. It is Joy’s desire to not only capture the magic she sees in the world, but to engage a viewer in a journey, a story, a moment. Traveling between Ohio and Michigan, StClaire resides with her dog Maggie May, Kitty Harrison and dozens of vintage cameras. Laughter and life’s simple things warm her heart. Joy’s art is showcased in homes and businesses around the world. Photographer, friend, dog mom, happy, genuine, green, dreamer & believer in karma & goodness.
