Born in New Rochelle NY, Joe Mullins studied at the Art Students League with Mario Cooper, Irwin Greenberg & Timothy Clark. He works primarily in watercolor, oil pastels and pen and ink. While most of his work is of the Hudson River Valley, Eastern Long Island, and New England, the particular place, mountain or ridge line is really secondary. The focus is the mood, time of day, season, state of the atmosphere, after a rain or just before a storm.
He began making impressions from fish during an Adirondack vacation in summer of 2005 and has been making the impressions ever since. He has exhibited extensively through New York State and New England is a member of the Croton Council of the Arts, the Art Students League of New York and the Garrison Art Center.
