Joe is an oil painter who was fortunate to have grown up in the bush environments of North Queensland's sugar town Proserpine and at a beach in the Whitsundays, which influenced his love and respect for the Australian bush.
Joe's painting process, his choice of colour palette, brush strokes and palette knife technique, is evoked by sensations from listening to varied music genres. His emotional response to these transcendent feelings, is the source from which he draws upon to capture Australia's natural environment, evidenced in combinations of colours, textures and expressive strokes.
Inspired by a group of self-taught artists, the 'Brushmen of the Bush', Joe's distinctive artistic technique has evolved into a individualistic painting style through experimentation and openness to new ideas and influences.
Exhibiting regularly, Joe's works are respresented in private and public collections around Australia and overseas.
Have been with gallery247 for 6 years, both free and now paid. Wonderful on line platform for artists which has made my work easy to find and i don't need to worry about setting up my own website; they even forwarded a message from a community college i volunteered for a few years ago, for an art tutor.

I have recently become a member of Gallery 247 as an artist, and am so impressed. Communication was quick and very personable. The website seems very user friendly. With the couple of questions I emailed I was looked after with a phone call and very kindly and professionally looked after. Highly recommend.
