About the Illustrator

Josh has always wanted to be an artist. He loved to draw and paint growing up and now his favorite is to paint portraits of people. He majored in Painting and minored in Portrait Arts from the Savannah College of Art and Design. Because Josh’s dad was a golf coach at Augusta State University, Josh started playing golf at 10 years old and still enjoys playing it when he can. He likes to attend the Masters Tournament where he pulls for his favorite golfers, Bubba Watson and Ian Poulter. Josh helps teach a local golf camp each summer to young children and when he is not painting or golfing, he loves to fish. Josh lives in Thomson, GA and has a studio in his house.
