The Artist Says:

Although I am attracted to certain areas and subject matter, painting is not so much about paintings things as much as it is painting light and its effects.

Other Artists Say:


Joe is well known for the quality of light  in his work. He is greatly influenced by the changing of seasons and the weather. The more dramatic the weather, the more inspired he feels. Joe celebrates the mood each season brings and he enjoys working on location to accurately see and capture the changing light. “Although I may be attracted to a certain place or scene, it is always my goal to move beyond a literal translation and say something extraordinary about light in my work. It is always the light and its effects that inspire me.”
Joe’s hard work and consistency are often rewarded.  In the Spring of 2017, Joe's painting "Path Of Light" received The Artist's Choice, People's Choice and Best Pastel awards at the Carmel Plein Air Festival. His painting titled “Morning Showers” Received "Best Of Show" in the Pastel Society Of Southern California Member's Exhibition.  In 2016 his painting, The Tide And Tempest, received “Best Of Show” in the 2nd Annual Rejoice In Art exhibition. His work has been published in the Pastel Journal, Southwest Art and the Santa Barbara Seasons to name a few.
Joe is a signature member with the Pastel Society of America. He is a  “Distinguished Pastelist” with The Pastel Society of the West Coast. He is  an artist member of the California Art Club,  a member of the Laguna Beach Plein Air Painters and a member of The Southern California Pastel Society. His paintings hang in private collections throughout North America and Europe.
