DKdesignfineart-Next Level World
DETAILS ABOUT THE ARTIST AND FASHION DESIGNER
PROFILE: As long as I can remember I have been drawing and seriously started to paint about 25 years ago. I specialized in the visual fine arts and graphic designs using a mixed-media of computer and acrylics. I create intense paintings with acrylics or oil on canvas. I have developed a method that has been referred to as the “Grantique” style. This style uses a combination of digital painting (using computer programs) followed by traditional acrylic paints on canvas. I have sold and donated many art pieces in the US and Europe. In 2007 founded DKdesign Fine Art to distribute the resulting work. My style mixes Renaissance technique with modern contemporary styles. Most recently, it is a pleasure to also bring my artistic creations to others in the form of wearable art in our new clothing company, Next Level World LLC. I am a co-founder of Next Level World and I specialize in creative fine art and clothing design.
