Joy Hagen is a painter in encaustic medium. Having grown up in Seattle, Washington, the daughter of a forester, her childhood was spent exploring logging roads and hiking and camping deep in the forests of the Pacific Northwest. It also provided the opportunity to live in the Philippines and Panama. Her work depicts remembered moments through selected bits and pieces from the natural world, usually with a reference to trees.
Hagen lives and works out of her home studio in Kirkland, Washington and regularly exhibits at Studio 103 in Seattle's Pioneer Square area. Recent honors include a 2017 Allied Arts Foundation Emerging Artist Award, a 2017 City of Kent Purchase Award and a 2016 City of Seattle Purchase Award. Her work can also be found in the permanent collections of the City of Kenmore, Wa., Swedish Medical Group - Redmond, Wa., Swedish Medical Group - Everett, Wa., and Swedish Medical Center Cancer Institute - Edmonds, WA.
