Jos started out painting as a youngster. His parents gave him a 'paint by numbers' kit, but he soon decided that he'd prefer to paint his own subjects. Art has been a constant in his life and in the late 1990's he took the plunge and made it his career. From painting extremely detailed and photo realistic his style changed gradualy to more impressionistic and colourful. Now his style is bold with lots of movement.
Jos paints on large canvas, he loves the freedom of working with large brushes and random looking strokes and marks, but when you stand back the painting takes form. He paints from his studio near Kirup. A lot of his work is done on commission; pet portraits, family portraits and land and cityscapes. You can find his work in galleries around WA, NZ and in Europe.
