Joel has travelled widely around Western Australia for many years seeking out places that interest him and may offer good compositions for the pastel drawings that he has produced. When he finds a good location he sets up his folding chair, clips his paper to a MDF board and draws what he sees in front of him. He then takes a photograph of the scene and uses this as a reference when he completes the piece in his studio at Binningup.

Joel has exhibited widely around Australia since his first ceramics exhibition at Carols Art Gallery in Perth in 1979, showing work that has included ceramics, photography, pastel drawings, silk screen prints and collage. Joel’s art is represented in major collections including the Art Gallery of WA, The Fremantle City art collection, The Shire of Mundaring art collection, The City of Geraldton art collection and The National Gallery of Victoria.
