Paper cutter who "Draws with Scissors"

Joyce Yarbrough - Biography



Nov 2014 - Jan 2015, St Louis Artist Guild Ann Metzger

Memorial included Joyce's "Storks", cut with scissors.  

July 10-September 2, 2014 two of Joyce's botanical

silhouettes were in "A Cut Above" exhibition at Highfield

Hall & Gardens in Falmouth MA.  May 3-25 2014 "Paper & Wire Transformed"

at the David Strawn Art Gallery, Jacksonville IL was an exhibition of Joyce's

scissors-cut paper art, and wire-wrapped jewelry by Mary Barge.  


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

Centre in Saint Charles, MO.   In 2012 she was one of four artists invited to

exhibit @ Stephens College "Drawn, Cut, Torn and Pasted" in Columbia, MO.  

Also in 2012 her art was exhibited at the Vreden Scherenschnitte Museum 

in Germany, the Pittsburgh Center for Contemporary Craft, and the GAP 

National Museum in Somerset, PA.  In June 2012, Joyce was also co-ordinator

for the Guild of American Papercutters Collection 2012 conference in St Louis.  

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."
