Frederic G. Emry III
Deric’s art has always been as much or more about the process vs production. This fact places him in places and allows connections with people that he might not otherwise have had the opportunity to enjoy. He is sincerely drawn to rapid line drawings and enjoys elevating these pieces to finished works vs pre-drawings. But this medium has also been a form that has allowed him to finish works in the spaces available alongside his career of the last twenty years.
