StaciaJoy's Profile Picture
Stacia Joy
Artist | Professional | Digital Art
United States
Born on Good Friday in the Midwest, I grew up surrounded by forests and animals and thunderstorms that split the sky. Practically a wild-child, I survived mainly by crafting weapons out of sticks, making up characters to be my comrades, and adhering to a strict diet of cookies. After I grew up a little I relocated to New England to study illustration at RISD:CE. Three years later, I'm now in the Pacific Northwest, having moved to be close to mountains, good coffee, and a bigger writing/illustration community.

I have been writing for ten years, and creating art for about as long. My focus is on speculative fiction and graphic design-slanting illustrations that explore themes of relationships, self-exploration, snark, and a fascination for the natural world. To learn more about my storytelling projects and novels, visit my website.


Small talk kills me. I'll take my coffee black, thanks. Yes, the hair is real.


Bare Bones Collection by StaciaJoy

"BARE BONES is a collection of poetry, prose, and freeform writings by author/illustrator Stacia Joy that peels back the thick skin of expectations, self-preservation, and societal norms in an attempt to honestly communicate what life with depression and PTSD is like; a glimpse through the stark lens of rediscovering emotional fluency that reveals the juxtaposition of pain and beauty in its rawest form."

Yes, I am finally beginning to share publicly the writings that have helped me process, and are currently helping me process, living with PTSD and the repercussions of (now mostly healed) depression. It's time. Silence doesn't change anything. 

Feel free to read along and either find camaraderie in your own battles, or walk a little way alongside the fighters, learn, and become an ally.
