Derrik Jordan

Born and raised in New Mexico, growing up in the arts rich town of Santa Fe among the vibrant sunsets, adobe structures and plateau mountain ranges, however visits to California as a child, seeing the beaches of southern California, became an integral longing. 

“Inspiration was all around me to be creative. Every friend I had, through out most of my life, was associated with music or art, so it is inevitable that those two elements are a direct source of inspiration and motivation... I’ve lived in various major cities and towns which have had their own influence, though my time living in California and painting the beach scenery has been a special joy.”
