Internationally recognized and collected artist Joye DeGoede of the original JoyEful Party Animals® works juxtapose reality with fantasy, inspiring the viewer to see the fun in the mundane and the vast opportunities for joy in our everyday world. Joye, says “I love painting the surrealistic mixture of animals imitating human habits and in their natural habitat to bring empathy to wildlife conservation."
The inspiration behind Joye’s art comes from her life experiences and adventures with family and friends. Every painting has a story and is based on Joye’s personal adventures.
“My art has taken an unanticipated fun turn. I was very serious with my subject matter and message. Life is too short not to laugh, smile and enjoy life. I haven't strayed from my original artist statement, just a JoyEful rabbit trail." Joye
