Upon realizing at an early age his enjoyment of drawing and painting, Dylan was encouraged to pursue his passion in art. Homeschooling allowed Dylan plenty of time to paint and gain inspiration from his travels. From the age of twelve he has participated in numerous group and solo exhibitions around the country. Dylan currently resides in the Atlanta, Ga area where he studied at Chris diDomizio’s art school for ten years. What he acquired from his teacher’s insights of works by various masters of art through history became a strong influence in Dylan’s work. Dylan’s paintings have been featured in International Artist, Watercolor, Wildlife Art, L’Art de Aquarelle, and numerous other publications. Dylan’s oeuvre depicting the people of Africa is inspired by his visits to Swaziland, Botswana, and South Africa. Experiencing the extraordinary beauty of Africa and its astonishing variety of wildlife has been something Dylan dreamed of as a boy; yet meeting the people of Africa deeply affected him. The beauty of God’s varied wonders continues to inspire him – as he paints the beauty and breadth of wildlife and people with an ability to “capture the soul.
