Design Spotlight: Joyce Geleynse

May 7, 2013

Today’s Design Spotlight shines on Joyce Geleynse, whose cards make an impact!


My name is Joyce Geleynse and I have been part of GCU for five years; however, I haven’t really gotten serious about my store here until about a year ago or so.

I create art in the realism style.  My passion is to create eye-catching, realistic images of every day objects and scenes.  I greatly enjoy incorporating these images into cards that can end up in the hands of people all over the world.

I have chosen this particular card because it’s one of my better-sellers on GCU which leads me to believe there is a need for a card such as this one.  Many people find themselves in the role of caregiver to someone who is old and/or disabled in some way.  It’s a huge calling and often the person is in danger of burnout or breakdown from such an arduous task.  This bright card can bring a ray of sunshine to someone who may desperately need it.

I work full time from my large studio in a tiny village in rural Eastern Ontario, Canada.  I have five grown children and 16 grandchildren (with a 17th on the way!).  My love for the simple country life, for family and animals, and my faith in God are all reflected in my artwork and in the cards I design.  It is sheer joy for me to get up each morning and get to work in the studio.  When I am not creating art, I can be found babysitting my grandchildren, visiting friends, reading books, watching history shows on PBS, singing for chronic patients at my local hospital, or enjoying dinner at a restaurant with my long-time girlfriends.
