After graduating from the University of Kansas in 1986 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts, Darrell moved to the northwest with his wife Brandy, and set his sights on painting in the fine art arena. He is influenced by the Wyeths, Vickrey, and his favorite 19th Century master, Bouguereau. His focus was diverted several times over the next few years, which included the birth of two sons, Matt and Dylan. Though fine art was his love, and many of his paintings are in corporate and private collections, he always had an alter-personality that enjoyed drawing science fiction/fantasy creatures and characters. While working for 10 years at a manufacturing plant, he spent his breaks drawing and honing his skills preparing for his leap into illustration. His first opportunity came in 1999 when a fellow artist referred him to an art director at Wizards of the Coast. Darrell finally showed the collection of concepts that were developed over those years to someone who would put his imagination to use. This opportunity eventually grew to include work for Magic: The Gathering, Warner Bros (Harry Potter), Dungeons & Dragons, Dragon Magazine, and LucasArts. Today, Darrell still lives in the Northwest with his family and continues to learn and strive to develop his potential as an artist.
