Derek Hegsted

Derek is a classical realist who uses the verdaccio underpainting method. This is the style of Renaissance masters such as Rembrandt, Bouguereau, and DiVinci. Due to this process, a single painting can take as long as a year.

Many of Derek's paintings have been published in religious publications, and on book and music covers. They have won many awards. Derek was the first to win the coveted international L. Ron Hubbard Gold Award Grand Prize, where artists from 45 different countries enter in hopes of winning. His art is known world-wide, and has sold over 300,000 prints.

Derek is married to the former Jolynn Muhlestein. They have six young children.
