Born in 1979 in Farmington, New Mexico, and raised in Shiprock and Kirtland, New Mexico, Hyrum Joe grew up in a family of Native American artists. He received inspiration from his father, Oreland C. Joe Sr., a well-known bronze and stone sculptor. After graduation from high school, he studied figurative charcoal drawing and oil painting at Mesa Community College in Mesa, Arizona, under instructor Jim Garrison, who taught with deep admiration for the 19th-century Masters. Joe was quickly drawn into his favorite subject matter, painting Native American portraits and portraying their culture and unique lifestyle from 1850 to 1950, a time period that is intriguing to him and still somewhat accessible.
