Now residing in Sarasota, Florida, Joseph grew up in Baton Rouge, Louisiana where he received a BA in Fine Arts at LSU. Later in his career he earned an MFA in painting from Texas Woman's University which included travel to Rome, England, Scotland and Greece to study art history, painting and sculpture.
