Born to an Indian father and American mother, Joya’s upbringing straddled two worlds of cultural identity. Childhood travels to the ancestral home in India, named “Rajo Villa”, continues to add to her visual memory and influences her work today. Through her watercolor paintings, Joya transports the viewer to a nostalgic sense of heritage and home.
