Greetings art lover! I'm J. W. DeBrock, currently living in the Midwestern United States - native to the desert Southwest, Arizona. I've been creating art for over four decades. I was a muralist and sign painter in the days when they were still done by hand, before the computers took over. I learned the basics of drawing and painting early - private lessons from an excellent teacher when I was in the fourth grade, a woman with the unlikely name of Joy Valentine - whose instruction was so strong and so compelling it has served me well my entire life and enabled me to teach others. I have worked with a wide variety of mediums - oil, charcoal, pastel, house paint - but prefer to work in acrylics for their vivid colors and quick drying time. I am most fascinated with the old master impressionists - VanGogh specifcally, my all-time favorite. Perhaps my favorite subject matter are themes from Arizona and the Native Tribes - I love to paint portraits with the vivid coloration of the desert. Additionally I work with a variety of other items - wood crafts, textile arts, and handmade jewelry. I've been married six times - you can see it in my signatures, a variety - lived all over the United States, have three beautiful grown children, and fancy myself an author, having published two novels (Horror/Erotica/Suspense) on Amazon for Kindle. It's been an interesting life this time around ! Namaste.
