He predominantly works with found material through sculpture and printmaking. His works reflect systems of organisation in daily life, with a dry humour and consideration for overlooked and under-appreciated objects. Most recently he has focused on poetic text works, drawing and collage.

Since living in Iceland, Joe has found a great interest in artist books and their history in the country and further afield. This has led to making many collaborative publications around exhibitions and happenings, as well as producing individual publications such as Stations of the Cross and Ring Name. Joe is a supervisor in the printmaking workshop of Iceland University of the Arts. As well as, he runs the studio/exhibition space, Associate Gallery with Ástríður Jónsdóttir and Hildur Elísa Jónsdóttir.
