His Art | Large-scale portraits and mixed-media abstracts
Lead the Way | While he’d always had a penchant for painting, it was his high school art teacher who inspired Devin’s confidence to become an artist. “Mrs. Schultz found the true artist in me and pushed me to become better.”
Work Evolution | “When I first started drawing, I wanted everything to be perfect. Over the past few years, I have learned to understand that the beauty of art is that it isn’t always perfect. I allow ‘mistakes’ to reveal character in the art.”
Favorite Medium | Epoxy, which he uses to create marbling and geode-like effects on his abstracts as well as finishes for custom countertops and flooring (pictured here). “The options for creativity are endless. It can be very uncontrollable, always creating a different outcome.”
Arkansas Inspiration | “Being by a lake or river in the fall always gets me in the creative spirit. There’s something about the combination of a peaceful wind flowing across the water and brushing against the leaves.”
Dream Project | A commissioned piece for a role model such as Steve Harvey or LeBron James.
