About Joe Friddle
An outdoorsman, a lover of nature, a believer in those things that provided our past… this is Joe Friddle. A transplanted Texan for almost 40 years, Joe was raised on the top of the last mountain in the Smoky Mountain Range in Birmingham, Alabama. He received his formal education from Auburn University and earned a B.S. in Art Education.
Throughout his life Joe has sought ways to share his love for wildlife, the great outdoors, and the importance of strong grassroot characters stemming from rural Texas. Beginning with stylized pencil drawings and portraits and now exploring the freedom of watercolor adds to the nature, Joe incorporates the mediums to join the outdoors and remembrance of time gone by. Whether portraits of old homesteads, historic building structures, still life or other specific portrait requests, there is always a story to tell.
While serving the public education as a teacher the most of 4 decades, his artistic pursuits are a continuation of exploring the beauty of Texas. A student of his interests, he continues to experiment and expand ways to share the character of his subject matter.
A member of the Texas Wild Bunch, Texas’ oldest organization of traditional style professional artists, Joe continues to discover outlets to share his painted subjects and evoke warm memories from those who see his work. His paintings can be found in private collections in many states as well as several countries around the world. Locally his works can be found at several galleries throughout Texas.
