Award-winning Illustrator Joyce Mihran Turley
has owned and operated Dixon Cove Design as the sole illustrator/designer for nearly 15 years. Specializing in book illustration since 1996, she enjoys working with small press and independent publishers in the Rocky Mountain region and beyond!
While earning her B.S. in Mathematics at Case Western Reserve University, Joyce studied painting and life drawing at the Cleveland Institute of Art. She continued her art studies at Colorado State University, establishing her illustration and design studio in the 1980s.
"With my technical background and artistic nature, I offer a unique perspective on natural science and non-fiction topics. Time spent with field observation and research allows me to render scientifically accurate images with a painterly style and colorful palette, engaging readers of all ages."
Joyce has lived in the foothills of the Colorado Rockies for over 25 years. Her studio permits convenient observation of deer, coyotes, lizards, eagles and hawks - just outside her picture windows!
