At the Light Chaser’s Thursday Morning Paint Outs you often find a group around Joseph. Artists want to see what he is painting and to look at his gear. Joseph is far more than a painter and beloved teacher in Sarasota. Joseph is our wizard! Joseph is an incredible inventor. His gear constantly changes and improves and we all improve and change because of Joseph.
Joseph spent seven years as a curator of exhibits in two natural history museums designing and creating History and Science exhibits. Joseph invented much of the magic you saw in TV commercials for 21 years as a designer and special effects artist. Light Chasers think there is nothing Joseph could not invent. We look forward to workshops near his house so we can see his treasure trove of an art studio. He invented his own counter balanced easel that goes up, down, every which way! He is familiar with the properties of wood, metal, plastics, and more. Best of all, Joseph loves to teach what he knows to us. Artist, brilliant inventor, sculptor, and beloved teacher Joseph is adept in watercolor, acrylic, and oils winning national awards in all three mediums. His powerful use of color and design skills help deﬁne him as one of America’s treasured painters.
