He descended from a long line of painters, growing up in an artistic environment. His father, who was an artist himself, taught Hoevenaar drawing and painting.

Hoevenaar worked and lived un Utrecht where he primarily painter cityscapes, still-lifes and genre-pieces. Beside his activities as a visual artist, Hoevenaar was a art teacher at his local art association 'Kunstliefde'. In an annual report from this association it is noted that his lessons, and especially those concerning the drawing from real-life models, were well-attended. Amongst his students were artists such as Gerrit van Dokkum.

His works are now part of multiple collections, primarily based in the Netherlands, such as that of the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam and the Central Museum in Utrecht.


Jozef was naast kunstschilder ook onderwijzer in de teken- en schilderkunst en restaurateur van schilderijen. Hij kreeg les van zijn vader Willem Pieter en was actief lid van het teken- en schildergenootschap “Kunstliefde”. In een jaarverslag van Kunstliefde (1910) staat vermeld dat de tekenoefeningen naar gekleed en ongekleed model, evenals het kosteloze tekenen naar gipsmodellen, die onder de langdurig beproefde leiding van Joz. Hoevenaar Wz stonden, goed bezocht werden. In deze stad was tekenleraar. Onder zijn leerlingen bevond zich onder anderen Arthur Briët en Gerrit van Dokkum. Werken van Hoevenaar bevinden zich onder meer in de collecties van het Centraal Museum te Utrecht en het Rijksmuseum te Amsterdam.
Hoevenaar overleed in juli 1926 op 85-jarige leeftijd in zijn woonplaats Utrecht.
