Joe's interest in painting began, when in his final year at Downlands College Toowoomba Qld he chose to study Art. Initially, Joe worked with acrylics, however, after joining a local art group he discovered the rewarding medium of oils.
After a hiatus of twenty years Joe felt the need to reacquaint himself with painting.
Joe describes himself as a landscape artist who uses a combination of oils and mix media to intuitively express his love for the Australian bush.
Joe achieves his interpretation of the landscape through skillful brush,squeegee and palette knife technique.
