A word from the artist about the artist:
How did a guy whose favorite subjects were mathematics, history, and art decide what profession to pursue?
For over two decades, Joseph’s creations have appeared in various forms. Specializing in aviation art, he
also paints military and other fine art. Using state-of-the-art airbrushes and acrylic paint, his work is
imaginative yet detailed, photo-realistic, and researched thoroughly. He is living proof that being obsessive-
compulsive is an asset for a realistic historical artist.
Joseph’s portfolio does not end with his fine and historical paintings. He has been creating commercial art
since his first year at Chicago’s Ray-Vogue School in 1976. Poster art; Magazine covers; Editorial illustration;
and Advertising for Sports & Fitness, Restaurants, Doctors, Defense, Government, and Civil entities are all
included in his very large body of work.
A member of the American Society of Aviation Artists since 1991, Joseph’s career really started during his
childhood back in Massachusetts when he won his high school’s graduating Artist Award. It continued at the
University of Notre Dame where he participated in Football, Rugby, and Boxing before graduating in 1973 with
his BA in the ”General Program of Liberal Studies”. ”I played any contact sport that was violent enough for
me to get seriously injured, but that’s just me.” His ”special” major was a ”Renaissance Man” builder: all
abstract thought - no practical knowledge, but it laid a great foundation for the dreamer-artist in him and
inspired his creative imagination. His ”practical” knowledge of art began at the Ray-Vogue School in Chicago,
before that school became part of the School of the Art Institute in Chicago. Receiving his Commercial Art
degree in 1978 after winning the ”Illustrator’s Award” in both 1977 and 1978, Joseph went out into the world to
make his fortune. He became very wealthy and retired at a youthful age when Joseph, his lovely wife, Linda,
and his two sweet parakeets, Barbara & Gipper, drove off into the sunset together and lived happily ever after.
No, not really.
Besides being self-employed constantly during and since Chicago, he also worked as an Art Director,
Marketing Director, or Graphic Artist for many entities, including the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools, Vaughan
Real Estate Company in Albuquerque, and various Screen Printers. Clients include: General Electric, the
United States Navy, the Federal Aviation Administration, Harris Corporation, Yale Locks, Mattel Toys, Chicago
Magazine, Charlotte Magazine, Charlotte O’s Baseball, Golf Digest, Football Digest, Timberland Shoe
Company, Max Muscle, Kirtland AFB, and many others.
