ABOUT

Hello, my name is F.J. (Joe) Hopps. I am a self-taught craftsman and artist living in east Texas. I was born
in 1945 and, for a substantial portion of that time, I have had a strong interest in the arts. I have lived in
the Tyler area for 30 years, twenty-three of which have been in Edom, Texas. Edom is a small arts
community sixteen miles west of Tyler on Highway 279. It is there that I have a studio and gallery open
to the public. You may find my hours at joehoppsfineart.com.


For the past year I have been revisiting my old passion of painting abstracts. I work primarily in acrylics
but delve into oils and mixed media as well. I think the best way to describe my form of painting would
be gestural abstract expressionism. For me, it invokes a feeling of movement and balance of color, and a
way to meditate and lose my sense of self in the process. The value it brings to my life is immeasurable.
It is with immense pleasure I share my work here and at Joe Hopps fine art gallery in Edom, Texas.
