My name is Josh Duffy, and I was born an artist. I have tried to escape from what I am many times and always ended up with a pencil or brush in my hand. Like my mom always told me, “it’s like diarrhea it runs in the genes”, but it sounds better when you say it rather than to read it. She is an extremely accomplished artist, and I feel sometimes as though I live my carreer in her shadow, although we lead two completely different paths in the artworld. I have been around art my entire life, and making a great living off of it has never been a question for me. All of my family, including my mom, dad, stepdad, and my brother are all amazing artists, and work hard at what they do to be the best.
