Dean was born and raised in Oregon and his love of fishing, camping and the outdoors can be found in the expressions of his art. When it comes to painting, he tries to keep his work loose and simple. "I am always striving to say the most with the least and like to keep my work loose and spontaneous. My goal is to capture the beauty and simplicity of a scene in a manner that people haven't seen a million times before." Dean's unique style and abundant use of color add excitement and action to all of his work.
