Biography Joseph Orr
Joseph Orr was born in Japan. Half American and half Japanese, he spent his first four years in an orphanage until he was adopted by an American service couple and brought to the United States. As a service family, the Orr's moved regularly around the country, and it is probably during his childhood when Joseph Orr discovered his love for travel. To this day he and his wife, Rita enjoy travelling and seeing the United States.
In the late 1960s, Orr took a job with Hallmark cards operating machinery. It was there that he met Tony Allison, a Hallmark artist, who mentored Orr. Encouraged by Allison, Orr took art classes at the Kansas City Art Institute and eventually worked for Hallmark for four years.
