Joel found his unique ability to paint after a car accident that left him paralyzed from the neck down in 2009. His wife, an artist herself, encouraged him to start painting Christmas cards in 2014... and they were a hit! Joel and Lauren are inspired by simple life on their farm and nature. Lauren drew for him and he painted each new creation by mouth. He still supports his family through the recreation of his pieces in the form of prints, ornaments, and cards.
