Witchery


Large numbers of works by MerryJoy are rendered in pen-and-ink, many of which were purchased as cover art for the San Juan Horseshoe, as wearable art designs produced by EarthZone, Inc. and Arctic Heat, Inc., and as illustrations for various publications, brochures, and business advertisements. Often these works have mysterious creatures and symbols hidden in the leaves, trees, or other parts of the image. Many of the originals are in collections across the USA. Below is a small sampling of those works.

MerryJoy's pen-and-ink style varies from cartoons to fantasy, from minimalism to realism. This body of work spans decades, beginning when she was twelve and first became intrigued by India ink and drafting pens. Her first rendering from that time won First Place in a childrens’ exhibition for her drawing, “The Stowaway.”
