Joe Winkler, originally from Baltimore, Maryland, has lived in Myrtle Beach for the majority of his life. In 2008, Joe graduated from The Citadel, The Military College of South Carolina with a Bachelor’s Degree in Civil Engineering. He works in residential construction for his family’s business, Winkler’s Construction. Joe is an E.I.T. (Engineer-in-Training) and is currently pursuing his professional license.
For Joe, art has been a self-taught, life-long hobby ever since he could pick up a pencil. Having no professional training, Joe developed his talent by experimenting with various media and styles. He discovered a strong interest in portraiture and the human figure. Joe creates photorealistic drawings by utilizing graphite and charcoal with a touch of ink as well as a meticulous attention to detail.
