When he realized college was around the corner he knew he wanted to pursue a degree in art. His love for digital art began to grow when he learned Photoshop in high school.
He started by creating and selling album covers to fellow classmates. This is when he really knew he wanted to pursue a career in art and design. Josh also has a passion and love for physical art. He is drawn to the unique textures and enjoys being consumed by a particular piece of work. Currently, he loves creating large paintings and art with subject matter that confuses people or makes them question what they are looking at.
