Born and raised on the plains of Western Kansas, Dennis has always had an interest in art. As a teen he felt called to be a minister in the Lutheran Church and dedicated himself to that calling from 1974 – 2014. Upon retirement, he felt the calling of art once again and began a new medium for him: watercolor.
Watercolor is one of the most difficult mediums and Dennis loved the challenges and joys of watercolor. He has set himself to become a master in the medium. While he still does acrylic and oil (and, of course drawing), watercolor is his first love.
Dennis loves the emotional impact of fine art. While his paintings are largely representational, they are more… deeper… conveying character, beauty, and emotion.
