1. The Beginning
From the very beginning Joshua began his passion for the art of painting at an early age. Growing up from a modest background, Joshua Spieker grew up in a family of nine brothers and sisters. Born and raised in the foothills of San Diego, Joshua began painting in his first year of high-school where he discovered his love for mixing colors. He enjoyed creating drawings and paintings as a hobby while never exploring the idea of creating a career out of art. Following his graduation in 2013, Joshua attended a community college where he studied for a year. It was his time spent in college where he discovered that he would step out of his comfort zone to begin his career as an artist.
2. Finding His Style
An empty bedroom in his home became his studio where he spent countless hours locked away studying, practicing, and painting through trial and error. Self taught through hands on experience is where he molded and shaped the framework of his unique style. Through his study of Albert Bierstadt and Thomas Moran, who are masters of dramatic light in their work, enlightened Joshua of the beauty that can be created with light. Joshua aims to continue the legacy of creating paintings that are full of light.
3. Capturing The Vision
The encouraging feedback from his family and friends, ignited the fuel for his dream to create and pursue a career in art. This led him to attending local art festivals one after the other. With the exposure of his art, his style continues to gain popularity. ” In art class, they taught me that my art was all about me, and something about that didn’t settle well. I’ve learned my art is not about me, its about you. My art is about reaching out and sharing something bigger than myself. My hope is that my art would allow us to seek and enjoy a more beautiful and brighter future.” Joshua’s art is dedicated to creating images that highlight simple yet inspirational messages. Through his paintings, he aims to serve others by offering works that bring hope and light to life.I find my art is not about me, its about you”
4. Wedding Art
His love for painting and socializing has become a dynamic duo with painting live at weddings. He is able to use his gifting to create beautiful images that last a lifetime while interacting and entertaining guests. while growing up, Joshua watched his older sister capture beautiful weddings with her photography. All the beautiful imagery and details that was happening at weddings caught his attention. Over years of developing his own style, Joshua’s passion for creating has prepared him for painting the most timeless and most beautiful weddings.
