My name is Joy. I started "Mom Is Drawing" to capture magical and fleeing moments of my new role in parenthood. Even to this day, watching my kid growing up so fast only makes me want to slow down time even more. I also wanted to reach out and empower fellow moms because, as a new mom, I needed encouragement more than anyone.  

We are a family of 3 continents and languages. My illustrations celebrate families, diversity, and empathy. 

I wore many creative hats over the years. My past clients include MTV Latin where I was on-air creative for 7 years, Discovery Kids, Miami Science Museum and more. 

I am an artist, a small shopkeeper, a fan of good coffee, ukulele, TED Talks, Montessori, KonMarie, NPR and podcasts.
