An intuitive painter, Darrell brings his life experiences and travels to his art making. He has been an avid student of art history, and his keen interest in aboriginal art is reflected in his use of bright colors, high contrast, and semi-pointillism in his paintings and graphics.
Today, Darrell is best known for his paintings of stylized figuratives depicting the rural gentility of African-Americans in the South. While earlier paintings were signed “D. Scott”, Darrell began using his middle name to readily mark those works which he created during the new millennium. He said, “Someone once told me to remember that what I put in my paintings will last forever…I don’t think about painting for other people…or whether the painting will sell or not. I paint because it makes me happy.”
Darrell currently lives in Hot Springs, Arkansas, where he works full-time at his art.
