Often Joe is asked how he comes by ideas for a new sculpture and that answer is easy; "I  see it in my mind from experience, or putting together a thought or emotion. I imagine the finished piece and then get to work on it. I enjoy telling folks about the background and development of each sculpture and then they can relate with their own story and love of the western lifestyle.
I love sculpting in clay. My passion for Western culture fuels my imagination and it inspires the subjects of my work.

A native of San Diego, Joe and his wife Debbie enjoy the horses, dogs and other "family members" 
at their home in Lakeside, California.
