Dr. Duane Cox opted for the financial security of a dental profession initially; graduating with a DMD from Medical College of GA. Only after retirement has he had the luxury of transforming his avocation into a second career. He has a unique style characterized by use of media he combines: canvas, industrial trash, pictures, clippings, polyurethane and latex paint in many colors. His unique style comes from being almost completely self taught as well as his attempts to “paint my dreams, leaving out as many nightmares as possible”.
