Artist Biography
Artist Dean Mitchell was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania; raised in Florida; and now lives in Kansas City, Missouri. His life was shaped by his maternal grandmother, Marie Mitchell, who raised him. It is this upbringing which inspires his remarkable work. Although Mitchell has termed himself "ordinary," his ability to make the ordinary special through his art is extraordinary.

"I bought my first set of oils when I was twelve," he says. At that point he was already using art as an escape from the everyday, and by the time he was accepted into the Columbus College of Art and Design in Ohio, he was already an accomplished painter. His paintings were winning awards by his sophomore year.

After graduation, Mitchell did paintings for a major greeting card company and participated in dozens of art shows. He received so many awards and so much recognition that he was eventually able to work commercially on a freelance basis and spend more time on his fine art career.

Just a few of his literally hundreds of awards are first prize at the T.H. Saunders International Artist and Watercolor Show held in London, top prize from The National Watercolor Society Show in California, the House of Heydenryk Award at the National Arts Club 89th Annual Watercolor Exhibition, and the Art for the Parks medal for overall excellence.

Although many of his awards are for watercolor, Mitchell does not limit himself in media, subject, or size. He also works in oil, pastel, acrylic, and several other media, while painting landscapes, portraits, street scenes, and still life. He is a member of The American Watercolor Society, and The National Society of Painters in Casein and Acrylic, among others.

"I want to create paintings that make peope think and feel," he says. "Art has to mean something, whether it is commercial or not. I think that, in the end, the spirituality takes over. Human feelings are universal, no matter what the subject."
