Joel Anderson

artist of smiles

Joel Anderson: “Artist of Smiles”. Artist, author, international speaker, ambassador and philanthropist from Fallbrook, California. Joel creates in Acrylic, mixed media, digital media, animation, and video production.  “My passion is for my art to make you smile. I enjoy using bright colors. When I hear music, I see color in the notes and sometimes that will show up in my art. When I paint portraits, sometimes I paint upside down so I do not get distracted by the emotions of the eyes of my subject. This way I can paint the shapes and shadows. In the end I will flip it over to finish the eyes and hope to capture the soul.  Joel has been spoken and painted in Peru, China, Japan, Canada, and across the USA where he has spoken on autism, inclusion and friendship and that God made everyone with a purpose from preschools to Universities like Drexel, Rutgers and USD. It makes me happy when students say my art has inspired them to be an artist. Proceeds from art sales support “Smile Bags” which he created to fill backpacks with arts supplies that Joel gives to children on his journeys and with the foundations he supports.
