BECKY JOYE
October 2015

Raleigh, NC – Becky Joye’s work captures the imaginative curiosity of childhood and the universal desire for escape, thrill, and play as an adult. She invites the viewer to pause and inhabit the magical moments of beauty and wonder found in the spaces of our imaginations. Becky was born in Charlotte, North Carolina and graduated from The University of North Carolina with a Bachelor of Architecture in 2003. Now she enjoys escaping to an invented world of color, pattern, and impracticable structures. She has exhibited her work in numerous group and solo exhibitions throughout the Southeast and in 2013 was a Regional Emerging Artist-in-Residence at Artspace in Raleigh, NC. Her work is in the collections of Capital One, the City of Raleigh, Fidelity Investments, and UVA Hospital. In 2015 her work was published in New American Paintings South #118.
