Born 1987, Dirk was raised in the small bayou town of Galliano, Louisiana. His artistic talents were recognized from a very young age and would help mold his path to become a professional artist. In 2005, Dirk moved away from the bayou to attend the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. The art program helped further his skills as well as develop his own unique style. In the spring of 2012, Dirk received his bachelor of Fine Arts degree with a concentration in Painting.
Dirk currently lives in Lafayette, and he stays involved in the local art scene by participating in various solo and group exhibitions. Aside from his large scale abstract works, he utilizes his talents by also painting portraits, landscapes, live events, and murals. His works are on display in various locations throughout Lafayette and Louisiana. Working with other artists and programs, Dirk strives to expand the creative arts within his community.
