Dennis is an artist, painter, sculptor, and sometimes poet creating artworks in a century old Victorian bungalow in historic Marshall, TX, east of the downtown area which serves as residence, studio, and gallery. His paintings are rendered primarily in acrylic paint and often includes the use of Sharpie permanent markers, paper collage, and other mixed media. The subjects of these paintings range from the mysterious Caddo Lake, abstract compositions, the female form to pieces that tell a story, mostly about the artist's journey. Sculpted works fabricated in metal are abstract pieces composed of geometric and twisted remnants of steel while works in clay tend to have more of a human element such as female torsos and stylized busts. All things are raw material for creating, the sketchbook, photos, trips and personal relationships all blend together to create this art.
