Derek Penix

Derek Penix lives & paints in
Tulsa, Oklahoma where he was born. Over the years Penix's work has changed greatly and continues to evolve with each painting. "I never want to be stuck painting only one way or only one subject matter. Variety is the spice of life and is especially that way for me with painting." 

 To date, Penix's most notable and recent award has been the 2016 "Gold Medal Award" from Oil Painters of America 25th National Juried Exhibition, boasting a $30,000 prize. 

Penix has been recognized in many national competitions and publications.
