Joe Welden

Joe Weldon works in acrylics, inks, and various textures. A part-time musician, Joe often uses music as his subject.


Many years ago, living in Philadelphia I became interested in modern art as there were many galleries and museums there to frequent. I also had some formal instruction for a very short time at the Print Club.

After I retired from postal work I started to renew my interest in painting and drawing. Having been a part time musician, I tend to use subject matter that is related to Jazz music and its environments, although I do not use music themes in my work entirely.

I like to work in acrylics, inks and various textures to achieve a certain kind of personal result. I have very much to learn and am grateful that I am able to do art at this time in life. I find it a very positive, healthful and entertaining avocation.
