About the Artist:

Dedicated to communicating the beauty that he sees in life through his art, Dyer believes it is important to paint directly from life to create works of art that speak with integrity and energy. Working in oils, Dyer seeks to combine the light, color, and "painterliness" of plein-air painting with the solid drawing and tonal accuracy of more academic styles of painting.
Dyer graduated from the University of Dallas with a Bachelor of Arts (Cum Laude), in three areas of study (painting, illustration, and advertising design). Dyer developed his career under the influence of America's finest painters while living in Santa Fe, New Mexico. He has found it necessary to travel in order to maintain vitality and inspiration, and has since painted in Europe, South America, Canada, and the Caribbean, as well as subjects from the Pacific to the Atlantic in the States. Dyer feels this constant challenge of new subjects stretches his abilities as an artist and allows him to return to his favorite subjects with new knowledge and a fresh eye. Those favorites include the people of Ecuador, Peru, the Caribbean and the landscapes of Vermont, Maine, New Mexico and the Rocky Mountains.

The Artist on His Art:

"I love the challenge of trying to capture many different things at once: the effects of light, form, an unusual design, the magic of nature, and the power of the human face and form. I especially love trying to capture the effects of sunlight."

"I am endlessly fascinated by new people and places and desire to search them out far and wide. For example, some of my most revered subjects are the indigenous people of the Andes Mountains. I remain in awe of the spiritual quality of their simple, yet difficult lives."
