Meet Inna Dzhanibekova, the owner of Small Joy Studio located on Main Street. Small Joy Studio and Gallery opened in 2012. It is a creative workspace and a gallery that hosts pop-up exhibitions and shows featuring guest artists’ work. Aside from events, her space is used as a studio where Inna designs and makes jewelry, enamels, and mixed media paintings.
After working in the pharmaceutical industry, Inna decided to pursue her creative interest and opened Small Joy Studios. Her creative interests include studying printmaking, 2D design, photography, ceramics, jewelry designs, and enameling. “My work is a joyful reflection of the forms and colors around us. There are no restraints, only a happy mess of colorful patterns surrounding interesting objects, a person, or an occasional critter.”
Inna said her customers appreciate the value of handcrafted goods. They prefer having something that didn’t come from a big company but love that their pieces from Small Joy Studios are unique.
