Joey is a freelance muralist, illustrator and painter from California. He grew up in Shingle Springs: a very small town, surrounded by golden fields and musty cows. He now resides in the Bay Area, where he received his BFA in Illustration at California College of the Arts with distinction. His whimsical magic-realist paintings are inspired most by nature. Joey has a strong emphasis on traditional media and loves painting large-scale. Joey's Mural works can be found in the Bay Area, CA and in Maui, Hawaii.
