Meet Courtney Joyner

Owner & Creative Genius of Brush Strokes Pottery

I've been a curious creative all my life but honestly too scared to truly try art until I was an adult. And this after growing up with an amazing artist for a Mom. You see I'm one of those over thinkers and perfectionists so if I don't have a plan...it doesn't happen.🤪 Well, after a little self talk and the desire to get out of corporate America, I decided to give it a go and taught myself everything I know about ceramics. Now I'm hooked. My philosophy...art is not about the end piece but rather about the experience along the way. It's a way for you to escape your day to day routine. A moment for you to zone out, quiet your mind and simply have fun. Remember that? Playing like a child without a care in the world? That's what I want you to experience when you create with Brush Strokes.

Creativity takes courage!

Heck yeah it does and I'm here to help. I'm Courtney, a self taught ceramic artist empowering others to create and experience the joy art can bring to your life.

My goal each and every day to inspire you to be a little less scared and little more brave to pick up a paint brush and bring out that inner artist within. Who knows...you might just surprise yourself and have a little FUN!

Meet the Team!

I am proud to employ an incredible group of young women here at Brush Strokes.

My goal is to always create a positive space for them to:

- have an opportunity to see female entrepreneurship in real life

- provide leadership opportunities

- empower them to solve problems

- push past any limiting beliefs of fear and negativity

- show up unapologetically as themselves & encourage them to go after their dreams

Work with us!
