    About the Artist

Self

  Joseph was born and raised in Olympia, Washington. The first influential artist in Joseph's life, his college art instructor, once said ”The human figure is the most complex subject to draw or paint. If you can draw a realistic figure, you can draw anything.”

  These words have created the foundation for Joseph's career, allowing him to focus his studies on figure drawing, painting, and portraiture. He studied with master artists Dana Levin in Providence and Cindy MacMillan in Boston. While he continually refines his ability to realistically depict the human figure, Joseph deepens his understanding of the arts on a daily basis. Currently, Joseph is focusing mainly on figurative work and commissioned work, in his studio in Galloway, New Jersey.
