Derrick Wanoskia


Derrick has been attending classes at the VSA North Fourth Art Center for four years. He began by using his fingers, as it was impossible for him to independently hold a paintbrush. As the years passed, Derrick observed others around him and realized he had the talent inside to adapt methods to paint that allowed him more control. He uses a variety of brush styles with adaptive handles and grips to add texture to his paintings. Derrick has proven to others that his work can be striking and powerful.
