Joseph “JD” Green demonstrates an eye for detail combined with a penchant for quick handwork. His process involves preliminary sketches from source imagery found online or in his imagination, sometimes combining these into a new composition, before creating a final version. His chosen disciplines are printmaking, drawing, painting, and ceramics.
