About the Artist

Sean Joy was very excited as this is her first art show. She is in the CSULB school of Metal Art’s metal program and is in the process of completing her BFA.Sean calls LA home but was lucky enough to dorm for 2 years here in Long Beach. When she’s not working on her art work, she’s gaming or looking for cats. When she is working on her artwork, she really likes to experiment and be active. Sean originally came in as a creative writing major then switched to studio arts and finally ended up at metal arts. She didn’t know there was a program that existed like it.

Formal Analysis

All the media is made up of metals like silver and copper. All of Sean’s pieces are extremely unique and all seem to have extremely smooth edges with interesting lines accenting all of her pieces.There was no additional color added so all of her work is the color of silver and copper.

Content Analysis

Sean really puts emotion into all of her work. She has a lot of respect for the metals and who they require patience to work with. Sean really loves how you can perfect metals from a technical aspect. There is no going back and changing anything so she has to go with what she’s feeling in the moment. You can really see this reflected in her work.


I was personally really inspired by her drive and passion to succeed in all of her work. College is really trying for all majors and a lot of people give up. Seeing how passionate she was inspired me to try a little harder in my school work.
