Derek Harrison 

From his first introduction to art at a very young age, through his years working as an artist in a variety of disciplines,
Derek Harrison has become one of the most exciting young realist artists today.
Harrison is a representational painter who has excelled at both figurative as well as landscape painting. Inspired by many
19th century artists, Harrison's work has become a culmination of classical techniques with the ability to portray contemporary subject matter in a timeless manner.
After his study at the Los Angeles Academy of Figurative Art, Derek continued his art education through workshops, seminars and classes with accomplished artists, including Jeremy Lipking, Sergio Sanchez and Sean Cheetham.
In 2014, Derek was featured in Southwest Art Magazine in their highly regarded "21 under 31." Derek was a 2nd place recipient in the 2013 Bold Brush painting competition and has since become a judge for the 2016 contest.
In addition to works published in Southwest Art, he has had
his work published in American Art Collector, Fine Art Connoisseur and several collective art books including, "Calveria," "Eight Arms of Inspiration" and "La Luz de Jesus
25 yr Anniversary."
He is currently a member of the California Art Club, the OPA (Oil Painters of America) and the Portrait Society of America. His works are held in many private and corporate collections; including the Weinstein Film Company, the collection of musician Richie Sambora and the collection of Sue Kroll (president of Warner Bros. worldwide marketing).
He currently works and resides in his State St. studio
in downtown Santa Barbara, California where he teaches workshops on a monthly basis.
