Born in Sydney in 1979, but later moved to the Central Coast with his parents and older brother Benjamin in 1980. He attended the Central Coast Grammar School from the age of nine and studied art throughout his school life, concluding with the Higher School Certificate. He then went on to study at the Julian Ashton Art School in Sydney where he enjoyed the stimulating atmosphere.
Josh has always shown a keen interest in drawing and painting from an early age, often working alongside his established artist father Peter Fennell. Which helped has enabled him to develop his own individual approach to his work. As Joshua has demonstrated a broad appreciation of styles and techniques throughout his work, where we see him look more towards figurative studies, especially in pastels and oils. We also see Josh's love of the Australian countryside and beaches in his landscapes.

In 2001 he won the Camberwell Rotary Study Grant Award, which allowed him to study overseas at the Angel Academy in Florence.

Where he held a successful exhibition within a gallery in Jersey, his mother’s home island in the Channel Isles.
