Dennis Mercier is a self-taught, southern born and raised artist with a passion for color and expression. His diverse images create a style of great strength, color and vitality.

The Director of the Art Department at Coca-Cola, who was a business associate of his boss, was impressed with his talent and offered to send him to a Paris art school. Circumstances kept him from pursuing the opportunity, but Dennis never lost his love of painting. After a long career in business Dennis is finally putting all of his energy and talent into painting.
