Here is how Dwight describes his work:

“It’s a magical process with rewarding outcomes: I surmise an idea, collect my inspirational references, grab my tools, and go to work. I sketch by using the blocking in method, crucial for accepting and forming the ideas for my paintings. The first mark is the instigator, the spark, the embryo. Then I ponder, block in some more, ponder again and then – okay, the idea is complete! The final sketch may incubate and if needed, adjustments are made or, sometimes, the process is repeated. I must be committed to accepting my composition before moving on to the final phase of creating the painting. Then it’s just me, light and form.” 

Living in Doha, Qatar from 2001-2007, Dwight traveled internationally, capturing images of the Middle East, China, Thailand, India, and many other countries. He graduated with a BFA from the Ringling College of Art and Design in Sarasota, Florida. He also taught at Ringling College, along with courses in community and museum programs. He moved to Spartanburg, South Carolina in 2008, exhibiting solo in our region. His work has been seen in the SC Water Media Society Traveling Exhibition, Converse College, Blowing Rock History and Art Museum, Peacock Gallery at Middle Georgia State University, USC-Aiken, and The Art Station, Stone Mountain Georgia. Dwight has taught at the Greenville Center for the Creative Arts, Spartanburg Art Museum, and many regional workshops. He is collected by City of Greer, Spartanburg County Public Library, the Hobcaw Barony and private collectors. He is a member of the Salmagundi Club, National Watercolor Society, The Florida Watercolor Society, The Manatee Art Center, and is a signature member in excellence at the SC Watercolor Society.
