Vintage Clown by Donna Joy

When I first saw this adorable vintage clown Donna created, I was instantly taken back to childhood with memories of going to the circus. I could literally smell the dusty, animal-scented air combined with the scent of sweet cotton candy and rich buttered popcorn.

Donna has done a fantastic job transforming our Missy Doll Head into her red-striped clown. Such a cutie! Don’t you agree?

I just recently met Donna online when she posted on IG with her #the100dayproject of photos with captions. Every day, her comments on the vintage and antique photos had me belly-laughing. Her sense of humor is just the best!

I was happy to have her apply for a spot on our Artisan Design Team. I immediately thought she would be a good fit.

Let me introduce, Donna Joy.


Donna Joy
mixed media artist & teacher

I've been creating in one form or another ever since I picked up my first crayon. (and made my own with a lamp, crayon shavings and the lids from McDonald's cups)

”Formal" art training? No, but I've been taking classes since the 70's when my mom signed us up for everything. (from painting, ceramics, decoupage, painting on clothing...)

Got in on the rubber stamping craze in the 90's and have evolved from that. I love textiles, paint, old photos, vintage paper, rusty stuff - and like to incorporate any and all into whatever I'm working on, whether it's a book, 2-D or 3-D project.
