Artist Statement
I've been painting with passion since childhood. While my professional journey has taken many different paths, the common thread has been all things Visual. At this stage in my life I am fully committed to Art—whether creating it or sharing my Passion for it with others.
Dean's early years were spent in the Midwest where he graduated from St. Charles High School, IL and then Cornell College, IA. After receiving an MFA from Pratt Institute, NYC, he taught painting, drawing, design and art appreciation in college for four years. During that period he exhibited his work and received several museum purchase awards in regional and national competitions.
After teaching, Dean went on to forecast design and color trends at Armstrong World Industries and led contract textile development at Chatham Manufacturing, NC. Then as a partner in a North Carolina based textile marketing firm he developed and marketed products for four textile mills. He has owned and restored several historic properties, most recently an 1882 Diamond Collection Victorian inn in Norfolk, CT. Dean and his wife Jean Marie have recently relocated to Winston-Salem, NC, where he commits his undivided attention to painting and teaching. 
Dean was featured in the 2019 Spring issue of Seasons magazine, which serves the Triad area of North Carolina. The story was written by noted writer Jim Dodson, who has authored several books including the biography of Arnold Palmer. The complete article is listed below.
