Joy Kim is an Illustrator drawing on the unceded territories of the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh Nations (Vancouver, Canada).

She enjoys capturing the beauty of everyday objects, people, and childhood memories through simple shapes and a clean palette. Themes of the home and beauty in the mundane and simple routine of the everyday are often explored through her work. Her illustrations strive to convey such themes in ways that visually captivates viewers to see and appreciate the ordinary in a different light.

She is excited in continuing to create beautiful illustrations in all areas from editorial, picture book, to visual identity and branding.

I would love to work with you! You can reach me through my e-mail.
