Since 1993 Derr has been producing increasingly intricate yet beautiful digital artworks. The latest addition is "The Nesting", a striking image of an almost transcendental heron nesting in a bed of light and color fields. Some of Derr's other works will be featured this September at The International Festival of Nano Art in Romania at the
International Conference On Physics Of Advanced Materials. A new line of scarves featuring Derr's work are soon to be released Katmandu Inc.

This is the cornerstone of what it is to be a thinking human being. My painting, mixed media and digital works are his explorations into the creative spirit.
