About Joseph Albert

Internationally known, Joseph, a native Seattleite, now lives on Whidbey Island.  Joseph has been enamored with Native American and First Nation cultures and art, and folk art carvings since he was a child.  As a result, he has collections of Northwest Coast and Southwestern Indian art, and folk art carvings from the Ozarks and Midwest. As a child of 10-1/2, Joseph emulated the Crow Indian ritual for male rite of passage and, during his vision, received the eagle as his totem.

Although not limiting himself, he has elected to concentrate his carving on Northwest Coast Native style art as he especially admires the uniqueness and beauty of the art form. Joseph also creates non-native expressions in wood, soapstone, and glass, enjoys carving birds and caricatures, and woodturning.  He also enjoys glass etching and metalsmithing

Joseph’s work is in private collections in: England, Germany; Canada, Baja California, Mexico, Turkmenistan, and throughout the U.S. His work also has been accepted in Coupeville Arts & Crafts Festival juried art shows and was awarded a prize in 2003.

Joseph’s works may be viewed at the Penn Cove Gallery, Coupeville Washington and the Eagles’ Nest Inn, Langley, Washington.

He was commissioned to render, in wood, the “Oneness Symbol” of the Spiritual Life Center Church of Sacramento, California.

Joseph has studied under/taken classes from: Sam Albano, Dale Faulstich, Lee Griffiths, Bob Guge, Jay Haavik, Barry Herem, Scott Jensen, Mary Ellen O’Conner, Duane Pasco, Jim Ploegman, Steve Prescott, Tim Runyan, Al Short, Israel Shotridge, Cleve Taylor, Dave Stetson and Dick Weber.  

Joseph is a member of the Master Carver’s Association of Renton, Washington and has been one of the Coupeville Arts & Crafts Festival “artists in action” since 1998.  He is also a member of the Whidbey Island Woodworkers Guild, the American Association of Woodturners, The National Wood Carvers Association, and a charter member of the Smithsonian Indian Museum.

He has won a number of prize ribbons in northwest carving shows.

In recognition and appreciation of the Pacific Northwest Art Form, Joseph donates a portion of his proceeds to native causes
