Joe Friddle

Painting - Watercolor


An outdoorsman, a lover of nature, a believer in those things that provided our past… this is Joe Friddle. A transplanted Texan for almost 40 years, Joe was raised on the top of the last mountain in the Smoky Mountain Range in Birmingham, Alabama. He received his formal education from Auburn University and earned a B.S. in Art Education.

Throughout his life Joe has sought ways to share his love for wildlife, the great outdoors, and the importance of strong grassroot characters stemming from rural Texas. Beginning with stylized pencil drawings and portraits and now exploring the freedom of watercolor adds to the nature, Joe incorporates the mediums to join the outdoors and remembrance of time gone by. Whether portraits of old homesteads, historic building structures, still life or other specific portrait requests, there is always a story to tell.
