ABOUT ME

ABOUT ME

I grew up in Poston, Arizona which is in the western part of the state along the Colorado River. Poston is on the Colorado River Indian Tribes (CRIT) Reservation, near Parker, AZ. This is an agricultural area that gets very hot in the summertime. Damned hot.

Now I live in Scottsdale, where I play with color, create, teach therapeutic art, and more.

I’m a longtime artist member of Xico, a Chicano/Native American arts organization in Phoenix.

Born in San Luis, R.C., Sonora, Mexico, I came to the U.S. at the age of three. But I will always be the Cisco Kid.

I have a BFA from Arizona State University. Go Devils!

My work and I are represented by Royse Contemporary in Scottsdale.

Also, I’m proud to have been a student of the late Claude Thorn. He was my high school teacher who suggested I pursue art and wouldn’t take no for an answer. I’m grateful for his encouragement and guidance, which altered my confused life-course as a teenager.

“I’ve been following Joe’s work for years since it first cast its spell on me. Joe’s art is full of color and joy yes, but there’s something even deeper at work. To me, it feels like magic.”

“I have loved Joe’s art for many many years. The vibrancy, color and depth of his heart pieces have always moved me. He designed my logo, and I have his art in my office and at home. There is an elegant simplicity and depth within them. You not only look at them but rather experience them in your soul.”
