Joyce Scott relates her work as an artist to her family's craft traditions and to her African American heritage. In her jewelry and sculpture, she employs humor and irony to address cultural stereotypes and issues of racism and sexism. Although Scott identifies African American, Native American, and West African Yoruba beadwork as primary influences, she emphasizes that her work refers to cultures around the globe, stating that "If we are going to work things out, we have to work together."
