Artist Showcase in the Pavilion

Virtual Showcase Featured Artist: Joe Baker

Artist Biography

Joe Baker was diagnosed with Autism at 4 years old.  After intensive speech therapy and OT as well as supportive special education teachers he made tremendous progress. He encountered a setback at age 10 with the development of Epilepsy.  In 2019, Epilepsy cut his high school experience short, but he managed to graduate!

Throughout all of this, Joe developed a passion for drawing.  Art helps him make sense of his emotions and of the world. When COVID-19 happened in 2020,  our family decided to renovate a bedroom into an Art Studio.  Joe began to sell his Art online and our small business “Artfully Joe” was born.

Now at age 20, Joe has taken his passion and created a purpose.
