Born in Northern Vermont, Derick now resides in Philadelphia; at least for the moment.
An artist from an early age, Derick wanted to create beauty in everything he saw, even if no one else could. “There is even a beauty to sadness, and especially in the madness.”
With a palette full of creativity, trauma, passion, and a bit of pareidolia, he began to develop his style by drawing inspiration from artists like Pablo Picasso, and Kandinsky. His usage of bright, bold, and often contrasting colors, can sometimes reflect a Pop Art vibe, while the underlying message of his work, is born from the pain of a collective human trauma, reflected in our faces.
Since High School he has carefully crafted a unique style that can be minimalistic and still wrought with emotional energy.
