“Every time I pick up the brush it’s a brand new experience,” said Joe who has been painting and teaching art since 1959. “After thirty-five years devoted to watercolor landscapes, I find my work keeps leaning more and more towards non-objective painting in oils, acrylics and watercolor. I’m attempting to create balance between a minimal number of shapes…I call it aesthetic homeostasis."

Joe strives to live his life creatively and be a risk taker. He is committed to investigating his own systems of visual communication, and creating work that is uniquely his own. He shares his studio with his wife, Ann Sharp, who is a portrait painter.
