Joel Pritchard is an artist, writer, musician, and expert beard grower from Snohomish, Washington. Joel completed a BA in Literature, Writing, and Film at Arizona State University in 2010 and now works as a full time artist in Phoenix, Arizona. His early art education was primarily self taught, with the exception of some high school and college courses. In 2012/13, he trained under John and Elli Milan at Milan Fine Art in Queen Creek, Arizona. He has received numerous awards for his art, though none really worth mentioning, and his mother “really likes it.”
