Artist Profile: Joe Toledo
A native of the Jemez Pueblo in New Mexico, Toledo paints what is solace for him; the quiet power of the eagle feather, the stateliness of the bison, the protection of the eagle feather, the passing harmony of a weathered barn and equally weathered land.
Toledo has chosen watercolor "because it is spontaneous and unpredictable." So too, the artist and the man. The images of his eye become thoughts on paper placed there with the extraordinary and sensitive ease which is unique to his brush.
Toledo received his Bachelor's degree from Southwestern College, Winfield Kansas and his Master 's from University of Northern Colorado, Greely. He settled in Colorado where he retired after 25 years as an art teacher.
Joe Toledo's absorption with life and painting is rich as the sun which pours down on the Southwest
Colorado landscape that is his home. It is what makes his works treasures in private and corporate collections in the United States, Canada , and Europe.
