Brag about yourself - what makes you great at what you do?
I am a graduate of Carnegie-Mellon University in Art and from Minneapolis Technical College in Commercial Art. I taught talented youth cartooning,drawing and painting for twelve years in St. Paul Academy's Summer Art Program. I was instrumental in creating a CARF award winning program art program as an Art Facilitator for developmentally and physically disabled adults.

Joel does a great job of imbuing each of his buildings with personality. His style is highly detailed, but retains a sketch-like essence. The drawings are mainly done in pen and ink, and most of them are in black and white. I really like these drawings, as they present the homes and their immediate surroundings without any embellishment. They function very well as a series, but are fascinating as individuals. Joel also creates colour illustrations of shop windows and the items displayed therein.

In addition to these illustrations, Joel also has a collection of uncategorized work available on his website at www.house-illustrations.com. These works range from abstract paintings to small pen-and-ink still life studies. Joel’s style of drawing shows through even in these experimental works.

My website has been seen in over one countries and in all of the states od the United States. Currently I am doing a painting of a family home dated 1920-1930 in Shanghai, China.
What types of business contacts are you looking to make?
I am interested in contacting real estate brokers, homeowners and innkepers and anyone who is interested in giving a unique gift to a client or friend of a pen-and-ink or watercolor House Portrait Illustration. I have done House Portraits from coast-to-coast.
