At the age of thirteen Joshua began his art career by selling his sculptures to art galleries. By the age of seventeen he began competing in numerous art competitions around the country where he has won many “best of show” honors. In 2000, Joshua began working on a series of cast reproductions for the Danbury Mint. After graduating from Judson University in 2002 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Visual Communications, he began his own wood sculpting company called Fins in Wood. Josh continues to teach children and adults in his home studio, surrounding communities and around the country. In 2004, Josh and Bob Guge became co-founders of The Guge Institute of Wildlife Art. G.I.W.A. classes include painting, carving, sculpting, drawing, airbrush, design and more. Josh achieved one of his lifelong dreams in 2009, by becoming a World Champion sculptor. He won world titles in both the life-size and miniature divisions at the World Fish Carving Championships.
