Matt Duerr

 I started painting late in life and have been a professional artist for about 10 years.  I left the corporate world in Raleigh, NC and moved to Florida in 2015 to pursue a more relaxed lifestyle, along with my dream of being an artist.  I work exclusively with acrylics, using a palette knife, vibrant colors, and lots of textures in my work.  I think of myself as an impressionist but will sometimes lean a little into the abstract if the mood hits me.  Living in Clearwater, I acquired a love for anything to do with the ocean, the beach, or Florida in general.  I am a member of the Dunedin Artist Guild and participate in “Art in the Park” art shows in Downtown Dunedin.  I also enjoy taking part in art shows throughout Pinellas County.  It gives me the opportunity to meet a lot of interesting people from all over the world, and will talk about art as long as anyone is willing to listen.  You will notice a definite Southern accent if you ever drop by my tent for a visit.  I was born and raised in Huntsville, Alabama and have lived in various places throughout the South.

If you see anything on the website you are interested in please contact me and let me know.  If you are interested in particular colors or subject matter, I do commission work as well.
