Joyce Yarbrough - Biography



2015 is another year of many exciting artistic challenges ahead!

exhibition at Highfield Hall & Gardens in Falmouth MA.  

"Paper & Wire Transformed" was an exhibition of Joyce's scissors-cut paper art, 

with wire-wrapped jewelry by Mary Barge in May 2014 at the David Strawn Art

Gallery, Jacksonville IL.


In 2013, Joyce was Juror for the Paper-Cuts Exhibition at The  Foundry Art

College "Drawn, Cut, Torn and Pasted" in Columbia, MO in 2012, her art was also 

 exhibited at the Vreden Scherenschnitte Museum in Germany, the Pittsburgh

Center for Contemporary Craft, and the GAP National Museum in Somerset, PA.

Joyce was also co-ordinator for the Guild of American Papercutters Collection

2012 conference in St Louis in June.  Her art is currently on display at GAP 

National Museum in PA, and the Green Door Art Gallery in St Louis MO, as well 

as homes all over the world.


Well known for her skill with scissors, Joyce Yarbrough has also won awards for

pastel, handmade paper, pen & ink, and watercolor art.   Following graduation

from Missouri University, Joyce  worked at Hallmark Cards and studied art at

Kansas City Art Institute.  Working in the arts, as a graphic artist, illustrator, art

director, marketing co-ordinator and gallery owner, her talents have been

exhibited at fine art shows, museums, historic venues, galleries and many

special events.  Even as a literacy tutuor, she incorporated art into teaching 

children to read and write. 


"With nature my inspirational source, my challenge is to show the 'life' 

 of flower or even a feather, and decide which medium best achieves my

creative goal.  Experimenting with a variety of media, the positive and negative

interaction in nature continually  fascinates me.  Whether using scissors and

paper, pastels, pen & ink, or watercolor,   I see the "shape of things" before

seeing color or value relationships."
