Artist Profile: Denis “Yankee” Lyons

Greetings to all.

I am Denis Lyons, from Birch Grove St Andrew, in a little village called Gaupo meaning BEAUTIFUL/HANDSOME!!

I have been drawing from an early age of seven; my first ever painting was done with a piece of fabric wrapped around a stick to create a paintbrush, which I used to design my name on the wall.

 While only receiving three years of formal art training at secondary school level, I was determined to develop my art skills, as a result I  looked at YouTube videos, and read books, which had a positive impact on me, hence allowing me  to capture the 1st place position in the TA Marryshow Community College day Art competition 2011. I drew an astonishing eye capturing Portrait of Mr. Theophilus Albert Marryshow which I was highly praised for.

I enjoy working with acrylic paint and pencil, to create realistic pieces, but am also willing and open to work with new mediums. I am  only known for my  artistic  side, but I am  also versatile in technical skill cooking Vegan/ Ital meals,  barbering and is a handy-man around the house.
