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, Carla Bosch, Turner Vinson, Stuart Davies, and Hester Berry. 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 in paintings, as a refuge for my high technology day job.

I use eco-friendly methods, like solvent free mediums and brush cleaners (though sometimes Gamsol sparingly). I prefer natural and safe pigments over the harsher and toxic kinds. I buy local or domestic supplies, when possible, to keep shipping carbon footprint and package waste low. I reuse and recycle many of my materials, like jars, cardboard, and paper.
