Derek Alvarez has been creating art since he was 3 years old. One of his drawings was exhibited on a nation-wide tour at age 12. He earned an art scholarship to the University of Arizona, focusing on oil painting, graduating in 2004, Magna cum Laude. He began selling his oil paintings while still in college, exhibiting his work in Scottsdale, Arizona and New York City. His work can be found in several public and private collections throughout the country. Currently, he is working as a full-time artist while traveling with his wife and two sons, and shipping his artwork throughout the world.
My story has been published on The Huffington Post, you can read it here...
"It took the hospitalization of their youngest son for Alvarez to analyze where he was going with his art. He and his wife were already self employed, doing website design, but he wanted to put a bigger emphasis on his fine art pursuits."
