Joyce Cressi is a self-taught primitive folk artist from northern New York. She creates one-of-a-kind Santa figures and other holiday folk art, which she sells throughout the year.

She loves to incorporate discarded and forgotten items into her pieces. She finds many of these items at antiques shops, estate sales, and thrift stores, incorporating them into figures she hopes will be cherished by those who purchase them.
