About Joe Larotonda:
Joe is 50 years old, is from Cary, N.C., and has been studying great artist all his life. He was born in Poughkeepsie, N.Y. and lived there the first 10 years of his life. In grade school his favorite class was art and that never changed. As his art experience as a minor grew along with a little confidence, his mother would encourage him to enter his drawings in local and national contests. Although he never won, he never really cared about winning anything. It was more about being free and doing something he enjoyed.
Through the years he always enjoyed drawing and going to museums. The first museum he went too had a Jackson Pollock exhibit and he has been in love with abstract art ever since. Jackson Pollock once said “Painting is self-discovery. Every good artist paints what he is.” Joe feels that that is so true. He says, “don’t be something you’re not but paint what you are and who knows, people may dig it.” “Art isn’t something, it’s everything,” Joe says.
