Hello, I'm Joel!

Artist at Copper Sky Arts

     Joel Short was introduced to life as an artist at a young age.  He spent his childhood years on the art show circuit with his parents, both studio potters. Stubbornly refusing to learn from his parents' example, he pursued his own path as an artist starting in his late teens.


Joel has been working as a mixed media artist for the past 30 years.  During this time, he has worked in a variety of mediums, including welded steel, hot glass, wood and resin.  He is currently exploring a lifelong interest in copper, drawn to it by the color and inner glow, along with its ability to be formed and the myriad possibilities for coloring by patinas. The focus of his creative efforts is the 5,000 year old craft of repoussé.


Joel grew up in Florida but has lived in five different states and experienced varied careers as a musician, mechanic, chef, medical professional and farmer.  He currently lives with his wife and daughter on their 14 acre tropical fruit grove on the east coast of Florida.
