Josh was born in Poughkeepsie NY. He became interested in creating art later in his life. First with figure sculpting, then watercolor, and from there he went into other mediums. He followed in his mother's footsteps and creates collage pieces. He teaches collage classes for seniors and for the blind. His current focus is glass mosaics. He created a unique style in just his first piece. Josh added a relief style dimension to his mosaics which is rarely seen in the medium. His pieces are raised with dimension and movement created by adding depth and contrast. His works have appeared in gallery shows in Palm Springs, NYC and Palm Desert, CA.
His piece "Amalfi Villa" was part of the juried show at The Galen Palm Springs Art Museum, Palm Desert Gallery in Nov. 2019
He has sold figure sculptures, watercolor paintings and stained glass mosaics.
His mosaics are created with stained glass, Smalti, ceramic tile, glass, and other natural materials to create depth and texture. His works are generally 18 by 24 to 30 inches. They are framed in raised box frames. Some are encased in Plexiglass.
Josh has made The Coachella Valley his permanent home. It is a great place to live and create.
Here are some examples of Josh’s watercolors and sculptures.
