About Me

With thousands of dives across the Americas in places such as the Yucatan Peninsula, Cozumel, Venezuela, the Atlantic coast, the Pacific coast, the Hawaiian Islands, and even hot springs in high-altitude caves in Colorado, Derek is a highly accomplished diver. His art emanates this passion by combining epoxy resin with tropical hardwood slabs of Mango, Koa, Tamarind, Lychee and Monkeypod, giving his pieces a distinct interrelation between water and wood.
