Biography

Derek is a professional fine art painter. He who was exposed to the artistic passion by both his Father and Mother who were artists. 
 
His intention with each piece is to seek out the poetry of the moment and create a realistic impression, dynamically composed and expressively painted that honors the ultimate creative power of God.
 
With no other personal instruction in visual art since childhood, Derek he has been led through a regime of study. Beginning with the fundamentals of drawing, leading to composition, design, application, progressing to communication of meaning.
 
 
Following the process of study, goal setting, practice, and analysis, Derek pushes paint with humility and continues to evolve.
