Joy Gilinsky is a painter, intuitive artist, illustrator & designer. As a painter, Joy works with oils on large canvases in a figurative expressionistic style. Bold strokes and bright colors refer to archetypes and myth. Her work blends metaphors and irony with angst and whimsy to present her vision of an ever changing inner and outer reality.

While paint and canvas is a vehicle for Joy to express personal and universal truths it is also a vehicle for personal clarity and healing. With this understanding and intention Joy began creating personal mandalas to support others looking for the same. The medium and genre changed from oils to watercolors but the sensibility, symbolism and intention in both art forms is very similar. Taking the ancient mandala archetype Joy works with the mandala art form in a modern accessible way. Each commissioned mandala is populated with metaphors, power animals and symbols that speak directly to the heart of the individual to create one of a kind art that is unique to their needs, creating a powerful tool for healing, meditating and manifesting. In addition to personal mandalas Joy creates mandalas and empowerment art for hospitals and healing centers and facilitates mandala and empowerment workshops.

As well as painting, Ms.Gilinsky has a successful career as an illustrator and designer. She has lived and worked in Italy and worked in the Orient. Some of her clients include: DISNEY, WARNER BROS., VICTORIA'S SECRET, BURBERRY'S, PLAYTEX, LANCOME, THE WALL STREET JOURNAL, GIVENCHY, CLINIQUE & LIZ CLAIBORNE to name a few as well as major ad agencies and publications in the US and Italy. The projects she has worked on have varied from fashion design and illustration to children's art to packaging and product design & development.
