Josh has always had a keen interest in painting and drawing. Growing up in the Hutt Valley, if he wasn't outside kicking a ball or swinging a bat, he was inside making pictures.
In fact his first commissions were during his primary school years drawing reproductions of "Kiss" album covers for classmates!

Currently he is enjoying working in his studio in the hills of Upper Hutt, Wellington.
