Joe Armstrong grew up in London. For five years Joe studied at art and design at Epsom School of Art & Design. He moved to Cornwall in 1986 and since then, has been working as a self employed Graphic Designer.
In 2003 Joe started painting full time, slowly developing his semi abstract, palette knife style using oil paints directly from the tube.
Joe says, ‘I love to paint ‘plein air’ (outdoors) as much as possible, you can usually find me painting around the streets of Truro during the Spring and Summer months.’
