Joe Williams is an artist, author, historian and storyteller. Living with high-functioning autism has blessed him with a fantastic memory and love for visual arts. A graduate from Barrhead Composite High School, he also achieved great success through Senior High School Art with the A.D.L.C. (Alberta Distance Learning Centre).
He enjoyed taking a 3D Animation summer camp program at the Pixel Blue College in Edmonton. This is where he was coached to produce his “First Place Digital Award” winning picture of “Baby T-Rex.” Through the A.C.A.C.A. (Alberta Community Arts Club Association) he won the 2015 Northern Zone Award and the 2015 Alberta Wide Zone Award. Along with art work, calendars and several books he is working on currently, he aspires to be a 3D Animator someday!
Joe lives on his own in Barrhead with minimal support. He has been blessed with healing from various treatments, which are very expensive. Purchasing his book and other artwork, illustrative services and calendars contribute to supporting his treatments, as well as contributing to local organizations and provincial autism societies.
