About Dennis R. Fakes

Born and raised on the plains of Western Kansas, Dennis has always had an interest in art.  As a teen he felt called to be a minister in the Lutheran Church and dedicated himself to that calling from 1974 - 2014.  Upon retirement, he felt the calling of art once again and began a new medium for him: watercolor and acrylic. 

Dennis has set himself to become a master in watercolor.  While he still does acrylic and oil (and, of course, drawing), watercolor is his first love with acrylic close behind.

Dennis loves the emotional impact of fine art.  While his paintings are largely representational, they are more... deeper... conveying character, beauty, and emotion.
