ARTIST'S PORTRAIT * JOSH HARWELL

Today I am featuring a profile on my talented younger brother, Josh. He is a gifted graphic/web designer and photographer. He has a great gift for finding and capturing beauty in out of the way places.

Staying creative in a busy, demanding and sometimes monotonous environment.

Josh is one of those people who has a special aptitude for anything mechanical or technical, but, amazingly, has a very artistic side as well. He has taught everyone in the family what little we know about computers and I often have to call him for technical assistance! Did I mention he's very patient? In recent years, he has increasingly developed his love and gift for photography (no pun intended!) He has had his work published, even on the cover of school textbooks! Besides his photography, he has created an amazing portfolio of digital graphics work as well. Josh and his wife, Leigh Anne, reside in suburban Atlanta, Georgia.

Alright, now any other creative and talented hard working siblings that you might be hiding. Each of you are so unique. Photos are gorgeous. Who cares about sentence structure when his photos say more than any sentence could.
