Atelier Imagine Joy
Joy Deneen is a calligrapher, teacher and writer. She currently serves as International Workshops Coordinator and Membership Chair for La Société des calligraphes de Montréal and is a core contributor for UPPERCASE magazine and Calligrafile. She is also a member of IAMPETH (the Interntional Association of Master Penman, Engrossers and Teachers of Handwriting). Her calligraphy and products have been featured in Better Homes & Gardens, Air Canada enRoute Edition, Elegant Wedding and Mariage Québec, as well as on online publications Style Me Pretty, Wedding Chicks, Ruffled and 100 Layer Cake.
Joy has been drawing ever since she could hold a pencil and is a lifelong bibliophile, often pulling inspiration from her library of children’s books, classic literature and the works of Shakespeare. She finds calligraphy to be the ultimate synthesis of what she loves: language, art and human connection. Originally from California, Joy graduated from UCLA in 2003 with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Theatre. She and her husband Michael relocated from Los Angeles to Montréal in 2013.
Joy’s first collection of wedding invitation suites will launch in early 2017, and she will also debut a new set of letterpress cards at Le Coeur Bohème, designed especially for the non-traditionalists.
