Announcement   My name is Joseph, and I am a third year osteopathic medical student. In addition to being interested in medicine and the sciences, I am also an artist. Creating is a therapeutic process that allows me to reflect on my life and surroundings. Other times creating serves as a personal outlet where I do not have to think; I can mindlessly exist and create in a world absent of stress and academic demands.

Everything I list on my page is 100% original and has been inspired by my own thoughts and/or dreams. If you like what you see, but do not see exactly what you're looking for, I am open to doing a custom order just for you. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions pertaining to my policies, my items themselves, or just want to chat. Thank you for viewing my page!

Lucky you!

About

Etsy forces me to take a break from school, and nourish myself through the creative process.

I have been creating all kinds of art for pretty much my entire life. I opened my etsy shop as a Pre-Med college student, and am now going on my second year in osteopathic medical school. Being a successful student and learner has been one of my top priorities. Unfortunately, academia places huge time and emotional constraints on my ability to make art. I create whenever I have time because without art, my life would not be as rich. My etsy shop gives me a reason to create. Thanks etsy!

Thanks for your support and interest everyone!

    My name is Joseph, and I am starting my second year as an osteopathic medical student. When I'm not buried in medical texts, I enjoy creating everything and everything. Making art deepens my self-understanding, allows me to grow as an artist and a human person, and preserves my humanity. Thanks for your support!

Welcome to my shop! My name is Joe, and I am a self-taught artist of many sorts. I have been happily creating for practically my entire life and have began working with a larger variety of media over the past few years. I am a full time med student, so creating is my primary source of relaxation, happiness, and sanity. A goal of mine is to spread happiness and love through my homemade pieces. Feel it. Embrace it.
