The Artist Says:


"It is my dream to create an art which is filled with balance, purity and calmness, freed from a subject matter that is disconcerting or too attention-seeking. In my paintings, I wish to create a spiritual remedy, similar to a comfortable armchair which provides rest from physical expectation for the spiritually working, the businessman as well as the artist."
Henri Matisse

Joseph Ebberwein paints from life's inspirations.
 
Born in 1964, he is a resident of Savannah, Georgia, a beautiful city on the Georgia coast, rich in history and salty characters and atmospheric landscapes. While not formally trained, he soaked in the teachings of a very talented graduate of the Savannah College of Art and Design who led a group of students in her home studio to explore the passion for creating beautiful paintings.  Subsequent to his teacher relocating to her home near New Orleans, he has continued his education and refinement through self-study, workshops and painting with other local artists.
 
While he had always had an appreciation of beautiful art and relished those times at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the Chicago Art Institute, or the Uffizi in Florence standing in awe of masterpieces by Van Gogh, Monet, Renoir, Degas, Cezanne or Rembrandt, as well as the American Impressionists like Twachtman, Frieseke, and Hassam, he did not actually begin painting until 2008. Soon a hobby became a passion as he discovered the satisfaction of taking a blank, harsh white canvas and filling it with shapes and shades of color, capturing the emotion of a beautiful ocean sunset, marsh landscape, or a field of flowers.  
 
Primarily he paints landscapes of this beautiful coastal marshland where he resides, but he has not limited himself to any one focus, continuing to explore his style through various styles and mediums.
