About Joe G

Joe G

In the 1980's, I sneakily pressed kid fingerprints into my father's oil paintings. In 2019, I took up painting myself, as a safer interest than motorcycles. History repeats. I find cat paw prints on my own paintings.

My influences are my father, Bill Alexander, Bob Ross, Diane Andre, Robert Burridge, Patti Mollica, and Carla Bosch. My bengal cat, Benny Roo, is my muse and art director.

I believe nature is wonderful, but fleeting in our mechanical, digital, and modern age. Nature deserves preservation. So I capture nature's beauty in landscape and still life paintings, as a refuge for my high technology day job.

I use eco-friendly methods, like solvent free cleaning and natural pigments. I recycle many of my materials, and use professional grade supplies.
