Derek Alvarez has been creating art since he was 3 years old, so you can say it has been a lifelong passion. Growing up in the city, nature has always inspired Derek through childhood camping trips in the mountains, deserts, and beaches of Southern California. Derek combines his love of nature and travel with his love of Modern Art to create expressive, often whimsical paintings that are unique to his experiences of place through his travels.
