Jocelyn Cruz is a storyteller. Specializing in mixed media, she layers her paintings with reclaimed objects to create textures and shades of colors in diverse depths. She recycles found materials to create interesting backgrounds and foregrounds, honor memories, and to add intriguing effects to each art piece. When Jocelyn approaches a project, she conducts exhaustive research, collects original artifacts and mementos, and contemplates the message, memories, and emotions she wants to convey. She takes critical risks with her art. While a typical painter might be satisfied in leaving alone a beautiful painted image, Jocelyn adds multiple layers on top of what might look like a completed painting to achieve greater composition. Her encaustic wax mixed media paintings, such as “Pigeon Point Lighthouse” and “Golden Gate Bridge” are ethereal and captivating. Shortly after opening her shop in Carmel, California in 2015, 65/57 Degrees Magazine published Jocelyn’s story and her work on its two-sided magazine covers: “57 Degrees: City of San Francisco” and “65 Degrees: Monterey Peninsula.” In Jocelyn’s interview at the San Diego Art Show 2015, she was noted as the most unique artist at the show. Rick Barnett, Redwood Media Group's Managing Director, said, “I walked this entire show. There are representational pieces that tend to blend over from one exhibit to another, and yet, Jocelyn’s particular exhibit was unique – there wasn’t anything like it in the entire show. It was the only thing that I might have seen that came across as authentic.” In Artexpo Las Vegas 2018 show, Jocelyn was featured and recognized as one of the successful artists of today.
