Joe Average’s new site! #art #photography

We are SO LUCKY to be able to access more of Joe Average’s work on his new site!  Check it out!  It’s like drinking a cool glass of clear, clean, beautiful water.

Joe Average (born 1957) is a Canadian artist who resides in Vancouver, British Columbia. Diagnosed HIV+ at age 27, Average made the decision to commit the rest of his life to art, and to challenge himself to live by his art.


I finally got to meet with Joe Average on August 3, 2012, and I was so moved!  He is one of my biggest inspirations…  Meeting your hero is a spiritual experience.  To discuss art together… not enough words can explain the delight and elation I felt!
