Greetings and welcome to my website! I enjoy my life as an artist living and working in the Pacific Northwest. I have been an artist all my life and I have a passion for art education. You will find that my artwork can take you to imaginary places that might only exist in our minds, to specific places in Italy and in the United States.

I have been a member of the faculty at Northwest College of Art & Design in Tacoma, WA since 2016, teaching classes in Drawing, Painting,& Illustration. This has been a lifelong dream of mine and I'm so lucky to be able to share my experiences with the next generation of great artists.

I enjoy creating custom paintings too, so don't hesitate to write me if there is something I can paint for you.

Artist Derek Gundy
