Artist Bio

Columbus College of Art & Design
BFA | Animation
2000-2004

Although a native of the great American Midwest, I now call Oregon's north border home. A professional artist since my career's launch in 2000, I developed my original and unique brand of art with my own animation and design studio. DisneyToon Studios, Warner Brothers, LAIKA Entertainment, and continued freelancing were soon to follow.

Studying Animation at the Columbus College of Art & Design started with a strong foundation in the fundamentals. Extensive coursework in sculpting, painting, drawing, and technical illustration were the cornerstone of my education. I became fluent in both two dimensional and three dimensional animation and the advanced coursework fully prepared me for work in fields as diverse as entertainment and medical illustration. The major stressed narrative and storytelling along with a strong commitment to craft and technique.

  • Joey is not your typical 'run-of-the-mill' artist. He's an honest, hardworking guy who simply gets the job done

    A.N. - Director/Owner at FireLion

  • Mr. Beckley did an awesome job for our new website and print ads. We highly reccommend Joe.

    R. Hamilton - Owner at BizAuthor Inc

  • There are three responses to a piece of design — yes, no, and WOW! WOW is the response we always have for Joe's work.
