Well known for her freehand silhouettes of people and pets,  
Joyce Yarbrough's repertoire has evolved to include plants,
places and many facets of nature including feathers, butterflies, and mandalas 
of intricate design.  Having won awards with a variety of
media, her creations may be done with pastels, watercolor, 
 paper cutting or a combination of mediums.
"Nature is the source of inspiration for my art.  
I cut paper with scissors to create “one of a kind art”. 
Using no patterns, only paper and scissors,  I "draw"  
a contour drawing with my scissors.  I try to capture the ‘life’
of my botanical and nature silhouettes creating a 3D effect.”  
Joyce's multi-media art was exhibited at many invitational
and juried exhibitions, and historical venues nationally.  
Internationally her paper-cut art has been to China, Poland,
and Germany.  
She attended China’s 2007 International Festival of Paper Arts.  
Her scissors-cut paper art is in permanent museum collections
in China and the USA, and as well as homes around the world. 
A graduate of Missouri University, Joyce continued her art
education at Kansas City Art Institute, while working at
Hallmark Cards.  She has worked as a marketing co-ordinator, 
art director, and an educational illustrator.    She even
incorporated art as a literacy tutor.  A  former board member 
of Guild of American Papercutters, Joyce is a member of
American Women Artists, American Society of Botanical 
Artists, and Art Saint Louis.  
A solo show of Joyce's multi-media nature art was exhibited 
November-December 2020 at the Anita B Gorman
Conservation Discovery Center in Kansas City MO.  Joyce's
art was displayed at Art Saint Louis's "Ordinary Lives"
exhibition in St Louis MO, and Framation's "Serenity"
exhibition  in St Charles MO in 2021.  
Currently her artwork is displayed at Grafica Fine Arts in
Webster Groves MO, and the Guild of American Paper-
cutters Museum inSomerset PA.
