Josh Schwake was born in 1982 in Elma, Iowa.  He was raised in Northeast Iowa, where he has studied many mediums including ceramics, watercolor, airbrush and prinkmaking.  He later moved to Eastern Iowa where he studied photography, glass, oil painting and advanced ceramics.  Josh currently lives in Ankeny, Iowa where he enjoys working in mixed media because of the endless possibilities of incorporating various medium techniques into a single piece. 

His most recent works combine the use of line, color and shape to symbolize thoughts, feelings and mood; while also obtaining a sense of movement.
