JOY STEUERWALD found herself drawing as soon as she could hold a pencil. So winning her first art contest in 3rd grade just sealed her fate; Joy was destined to be an illustrator. She graduated from San Jose State’s animation and illustration program with a Bachelor of Science Degree and has created art for the educational market, the giftware industry, and children’s book publishing. Joy sketches in pencil then uses Photoshop to add textures, details and color to create art that is playful and fresh. Her muse is a miniature, red, short haired Dachshund who has been joined by a small, human boy.
