Artist's Description

Joe is a lovely, charismatic artist who lives on a canalboat and paints bright, jolly scenes of Sheffield and some of his other favourite places. Very well know for his unique style, his paintings are particularly well-loved because he can tell you the story of each person painted into the picture – he really cares about the scene and the people that live in it. We were delighted to get to know Joe as one of the jewels in the crown of the Art In The Gardens event in Sheffield Botanical Gardens ( a great even to visit in September each year) and we asked Joe to be the subject of the Celebrity Portrait Competition one year and this was my entry. Didn’t win, and I can see things I would have done differently but I still love it because I felt I really captured him in a moment of real concentration – tongue out, painting like billy-o!
