Taking risks is how Dean approaches most everything. Using the unknown as a guide is what usually engages the venture of his creations. Hard Rock, Metal and Punk playing in the background tends to draw out the Rebelliousness of his youth and into his art. Originally inspired by Illustrative Art and Portraiture, his taste began to evolve into Impressionism and Abstracts because of the freeing levels of experience when producing such creations. After winning the Las Vegas International Juried Art Festival 2016, Dean is inspired and evermore grateful for opportunities to share his work.
