Todd Derr is the son of a Warrick Co. coal miner and 1960's flower child. Both influenced his life growing up in the country north of Boonville, IN.
From his dad he learned mechanics and practical thinking. From his mom he learned to appreciate nature and to dream and create. From both he was granted freedom to explore and take his life in his own hands. A source of frustration for them he is sure.
Being a self taught artist and one to eschew the well trampled path, Todd has had fits and starts with his art and has taken a few different directions with it. From creating beautiful works with an airbrush and automotive paint or his watercolors, his work has been a sincere effort of what he was feeling at the moment.
Now concentrating solely on his watercolors, Todd has a small studio in his home in Owensboro, KY. where he, his wife and two children live with their two dogs Charlie and Sophie.
