Joe's experience in art goes back more than a third of a century. In the late 1960's and early 1970's he was an avante-garde sculture, painter, printmaker and event master in San Francisco. In 1974 he moved to Vail where he opened the Wild Wind Gallery with visionary artist Carol Skylark and took up landscape etching.
While later studying and teaching physics (M.S., Physics, Colorado State University, 1980) he continued filling notebook after note book with both realistic and imaginative drawings.
His begining with digital art came in the early 1990's when he was using CAD to design experimental wind turbines. Although the wind turbine project ended Joe became intrigued with the expressive potential of digital art and now combines the powers of Photoshop, Bryce, Illustrator, truSpace and other programs to create his pictures.
At this writing Joe is employed at Colorado State University as a Computer Graphics Specialist working on a project called Powerful Pictures, which has the goal of developing new and more effective material to aid in the teaching of chemistry.
