Dean grew up in Parker, CO with two older brothers and spent his younger years going back and forth to competitive swim practices. I love art! I love to make art, look at art and most importantly teach art. During college, Dean knew he wanted to become a teacher and share his love of art with others. Dean graduated from Metropolitan State University of Denver with a BFA in Painting. Dean is married with a four-legged fur baby and spends his free time making art, skiing, golfing, and enjoying time with family and friends.
