Located in San Diego, California
My short bio: Joelyn is a graphic artist, illustrator and copywriter based in Southern California. She is a graduate of San Diego State University, where she earned a bachelor of applied arts and sciences degree in graphic design with distinction in the fine arts.
For ten years her graphic design, advertising and advertorial writing appeared daily in the San Diego Union-Tribune after which she worked for almost seven years as a senior graphic designer and copywriter for Asset, a financial services marketing firm.
From there, she was offered the position of content and marketing specialist first for Arc Products, a subsidiary of Lincoln Electric. A couple years (and during the Pandemic) later, she was offered the same position with Brotman Law, a small but talented firm of tax attorneys who specialize in helping business owners with large federal and California tax liabilities.
Currently Jo is doing freelance work as a content specialist, graphic designer and illustrator.
On a more personal note, if you reside here, you know there’s more sun than shadows in Southern California, and since moving here, the only things that I’ve technically held onto from my upper (say “Yah to the UP eh?”), and lower peninsula (M GO BLUE!) Michigan upbringing are various family members (still residing
there) and my Midwestern sensibilities. And my three years of living in New York City — the three boroughs of Brooklyn, Queens and Manhattan? I’ve long since lost the desire to live in the Big Apple, (despite missing its amazing energy), but I still clearly retain the memory of living there and am grateful for the experience and polish it gave to me.
My sometimes suburban boredom aside, I really don’t have a desire to ever leave Southern California. While available for freelance work, relocating from San Diego seems, well, remote. Well maybe Santa Fe or Taos or Sedona…Georgia O’Keefe dreams.
