Joseph Orr paints the American landscape, chronicling the places he likes to visit. Scenes captured through quiet observation and contemplative color sketches become finished paintings, capturing the essence of the scene to transport the viewer to a place of solitude and beauty. He studied at the Kansas City Art Institute and worked at Hallmark Cards for four years before pursuing a full time painting career. Since that time, Joseph's work has been featured in Southwest Art, Art of the West, The Artists, Workshop, and American Artists magazines. He has contributed instructional material on acrylic painting to several Northlight books and has won numerous awards including the Historical Art Award in the Arts for the Parks Top 100 competition. He is listed in Who's Who in American Art.
