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

She graduated from Emily Carr University of Art + Design with a BFA in Illustration.

She enjoys capturing the beauty of everyday objects, people, and childhood memories through simple shapes and a clean palette. Themes of the home and objects that evoke a sense of belonging are often explored within her work. Her illustrations strive to convey ideas that visually captivates viewers to see and appreciate the ordinary and the mundane that is often overlooked. 

Using a combination of both traditional and digital mediums, she is excited in continuing to create beautiful illustrations in all areas from editorial, picture books, visual branding, and design.

I would love to work with you! Please contact me through my e-mail.
