About Joseph

Based in Coastal Lancashire on the Fylde Peninsula, which has been a major influence on what I paint. I grew up by the sea, and my grandfather is a master bricklayer and taught me to look up at the buildings and to pay attention to the details of buildings.

My Grandmother was also a big influence, she was an oil painter early in my life and switched to watercolour later. I attended Blackpool and the Fylde college and was taught there about drawing from life, photography and how to mix acrylic paint.

I am a qualified art teacher, having attained a PGCE from Lancaster University.

I like to be playful when I paint, I’m not just doing a drawing and then colouring it in. I’m trying to capture the power and the energy of a place. There is an energy that people create within architecture that they use, there are finger prints of years of different people adding and altering and ever changing signage.
