About Me

My name is Derrick White. I am an artist and art professor teaching painting, sculpture and art appreciation at Tyler Junior College, Tyler Texas.

I exhibit in regional and national exhibitions and hold both a Masters of Fine Arts degree and a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of North Texas, Denton.

I am constantly working on my art and taking ideas and inspirations from my daily life and the lives and world around me. I am attracted to the unstructured results of actions and the inherent nature of materials, for example, drips of paint or the flow of a wood grain. I want my work to be engaging and fun but to also reveal its sincerity through form.
