Wan, Joyce

Award-winning author-illustrator, Joyce Wan, designed her first greeting card when she was in first grade for a city-wide greeting card design contest. The design won first place and was subsequently sold through a major department store chain. Twenty years later, that design would inspire a line of greeting cards and eventually a design studio called Wanart. Products featuring Joyce’s designs are now sold in boutiques and gift shops worldwide and she has published twenty books for children including the best-selling YOU ARE MY CUPCAKE. Joyce is originally from Massachusetts and currently lives in New Jersey with her husband and daughter. Through all her work, she hopes to inspire people to embrace the spirit of childhood and follow their dreams. www.wanart.com
