art of Dennis Curry is based in his love of the natural
world and its wildlife. Through this connection, Dennis
has significantly contributed to conservation work
around the world.
First traveling to East Africa in 1982, Dennis then co-founded Duma Safaris with friend and publisher, Christopher Law. This gave him the pleasure of introducing clients to the great game areas of Africa and sharing his appreciation of the wonderful diversity of this amazing part of our planet.
During his service with the United States army in 1966, Dennis was affiliated with the 25th infantry divisions combat artists program. This was a program to document the combat experience from an artist's perspective and taught his the power of the rendered image, as well as a deep desire to protect, rather than destroy, the environment.
Returning to civilian life in 1967, Dennis enrolled in Art studies and Santa Monica College and became caught up in the renaissance of original printmaking, becoming known for his works in the traditional intaglio mediums of etching and engraving.
In 1980 he was introduced to the contemporary
printmaking medium of Mylar Lithography at Sid Frances'
studio and in 1984 founded Blue Berry Press in Cambria,
California for the creation of his own work as well as
with other artists interested in creating with this
exciting new medium. Dennis' graphics are widely
collected nationally and internationally.
Dennis has been working in the more traditional medium of oil painting since 1998 adding another dimension to his creative expression.
