Joe's whimsical metal sculptures create an atmosphere of fun. His monumental-sized sunflowers and cacti are easy to spot in the sculpture garden.  


Joe attended the Cisco Junior College, then earned his BFA from Midwestern State University in 1980. He has been exhibited in “Best of Show, Texas Sculpture Association Show” at Las Colinas, 1995, “Art at the Bar Invitational Sculpture Exhibit” Dallas, TX 1988, “Excellence '88 National Juried Sculpture Exhibition” Dallas 1988, “OK USA National Juried Sculpture Exhibition” Lawton, OK 1985, and many more.
