Son of Joe Greene Sr., a renowned carver with artworks in both the Smithsonian & National Gallery collections.

Joe Greene Jr. learnt to carve when he was 9 years old from his father and grandfather. He has been carving for many years with most of his sculptures going into private collections. Joe is a self confessed fishing/hunting junkie & also very much spiritually connected to the land.

He carves primarily in antler and soapstone. Each major sculpture takes 5-6 weeks from concept to completion. The completed carving is then coloured with walnut dye that he creates from trees on his land.
