Finding Happiness with Joe Borri

shadow Mar 19

Joe currently works in business development and has had a passion for painting ever since he was 10 years old. At first, he pursued a career in painting but had a tough time making a living in Detroit and went into sales. Joe says, “As you get older, I think you realize your morality a little bit more. I hadn’t painted in a while, probably seven years I would say. I just decided I had to do it. I didn’t know what I was waiting for.” Joel Simon, from JSC Music in New York, ended up seeing Joe’s work that he has been working on of people in the music industry. Joel asked if he could create a couple of very large paintings for him. The owners of Midcoast Studios, where Joe works, graciously allowed him to paint in the space. Joe finds his happiness in being able to live his passion and create paintings. He says, “If you ever feel like you’re born to do something, I feel like I was born to do this.”
