Joey Blazek


I have always loved painting but pursued a career in graphic design after my graduation from Lamar with a BFA in 1978. I returned to painting after the Bolivar Peninsula I grew up with was practically destroyed by Hurricane Ike in 2008. The beach and the water have always been a place that recharges me with the soothing sounds of the waves, the play of light and shadow as the day progresses, the variety of constantly moving birds, and the infinite horizon. I paint to evoke my love of our coast.
