About the Artist

Born in Trenton, artist Joel Cermele earned an Associate Degree in Commercial and Fine Art from Mercer County College and a BA from Rutgers University in Health Administration.  He has worked as an Art Director, Graphic Artist and Broadcaster for over 30 years, and has won numerous awards, including two Emmy Awards.

While he is accomplished in digital arts, Cermele prefers putting pen or brush to paper, and has recently returned to his first love, acrylic painting.  As an artist, he is most interested in a painting’s composition and is currently focused on landscapes.

Besides the two Emmy Awards, Cermele considers having his painting stolen from an art show one of his greatest honors.
