Joseph Ebberwein has always had an appreciation of beautiful art and relished his time at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the Chicago Art Institute, or the Uffizi in Florence, standing in awe of masterpieces by Van Gogh, Monet, Renoir, Degas, Cezanne or Rembrandt, as well as the American Impressionists like Twachtman, Frieseke and Hassam.
Painting began as a hobby for him and soon became a passion when he began lessons in the home of a friend who had graduated from the Savannah College of Art and Design. He discovered the satisfaction of taking a blank, harsh white canvas and filling it with shapes and shades of color, capturing the emotion of a beautiful ocean sunset, marsh landscape or a field of flowers.
He is a native of Savannah who loves the coast of Georgia and South Carolina.
Primarily, he paints landscapes of the beautiful coastal marshland where he lives, but has not limited himself to any one focus. Joseph says he is continuing to explore his style through various mediums.
