I’ve loved action paintings since I was first introduced to the work of Jackson Pollock. The freedom of expression in this style of painting is so exciting that once I get start painting I often paint until I am out of canvas! Each person sees the art differently and I enjoy hearing other people’s interpretation of my work. Sharing the work is what keeps it fresh for me as an artist with as each new interaction bringing something different to the experience.
Though young, Joshua has already begun competing internationally. His work couples youthful optimism with a maturity beyond his years. He was featured artist for more than a month on the Artpickle website and he won the Audience Appreciation award in his category at the 2015 and 2016 Southern Maryland Film Festivals.
With over 50 paintings to his credit, Joshua shows no sign of slowing down. As a member of the Maryland Federation of Art, Josh looks forward to meeting his fellow artists and expanding his audience as a participant in their group shows, as well as continuing to showcase his work in solo exhibitions closer to home.
