Growing up in London, Joe Armstrong spent five years studying Art an Design at the Epsom School of Art. After a stint working in advertising, in 1986 he moved to Cornwall, where he went on to have a successful career in graphic design for thirty years. It might seem unusual for someone like Joe Armstrong to go from a world that demands a regimented, logistical creative approach, to one that epitomizes fluidity and freedom.
Yet for Joe, with his unmistakable style that embodies a sense of vibrant spontaneity, painting was always at the forefront of his mind and as he started to develop his work he was soon offering original art for sale alongside his graphic design business.
Now a full-time artist, Joe sells and exhibits his work in galleries across Cornwall, with an impressive range of collectors and followers of his pieces worldwide.
