Joe is a painter and printmaker and the flowing organic patterns that ripple through his works have won him a following throughout New Zealand.
Joe has a bachelor of media arts from the Waikato Institute of Technology. As a secondary school Art teacher for 14 years, Joe got lots of the ideas for his work through interactions with his students. His students also experienced first-hand the different processes involved in his prints, drawings and paintings.
From the start of 2017 Joe finished teaching and is now a full time artist.
In 2018 he opened the Art Studio & Gallery at 51a Fergusson Street, Feilding where he paints, teaches art classes and exhibits his work and the work of other artists.
