Born in Virginia, Joe Lynch was raised moving from city to city as his dad’s career took the family across the country.  As a teenager his affinity for art grew, and with the support of his family and high school art teacher, Joe explored drawing and watercolor, developed a technique to embrace being colorblind, and set his sights on a career in Architecture. 

After graduating from Texas A&M University with a bachelor degree in Civil Engineering and a masters in Architecture, Joe moved to Washington, D.C. where he worked on historic residential projects for the Army and the Navy.  Joe also worked in the tasting room of Barboursville Vineyards where he developed a passion for wine and the places it's created. In 2011, an unexpected career opportunity brought Joe to Honolulu, where he continued exploring his passions by volunteering with the Historic Hawaii Foundation and studying travel sketching at the Honolulu Museum of Art.  One of Joe's paintings honoring the 50th Anniversary of the Hawaii State Capitol Building was selected for the Hawaii Watercolor Society's Spring 2019 show.  Joe has also continued developing his knowledge of wine by passing the Court of Master Sommelier's level 1 exam, earning certificates in viticulture and enology, and through travel to some of the world's most exciting regions. 

Building upon his love of history and tradition as well as a passion for wine and architecture, Joe aims to help clients shape their spaces by capturing the places that are the backdrop of their memories and experiences.  Joe's style combines the excitement of today's modern urban sketcher with the traditional hand of an architect.
