Please allow a few seconds for images to load up on your screen. All works are copyright- 2005- Dune Patten. All rights reserved. All works are originals.


I want to personally thank you for visiting my site. It is my hope that you spend time with these works and find these works you are about to view as inspirational; as this is the source for which my works were created. I seek not to glorify myself with the work; I seek to glorify Him whom has glorified me with this gift. All works are created in the style I have termed, URBAN EXPRESSIONISM- copyright 2002.

What is more, I consider everything a loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things. I consider them garbage, that I have gain Christ- knowing bthese things are ephemeral; but to create wonderful works of art for posterity worthy of uplifting the soul and spirit....YEP 

NEW WORKS AVAILABLE with more updating soon, as this site is in constant and ever-increasing change; so do come back oftern.  It is my hope that the quality of the works that you see in the various galleries appeal to you; and even moves you toward a purchase or purchases.  If so,then it is my pleasure to ship tp your home or office; as well as to create a work of art on the basis of your commission specifications.  If you would like to make a commissioned purchase and/or make general inquiry, then please contact me via email or phone.

""I am a creative Spirit, formerly known as Visual Artist.  The personal nature of my unique style is that it gives amplification to the softened voice fallen on the deaf ears of society. In other words, the meaning in form can have just as much, if not more, meaning than the form itself.  Whether in play or not, art should be about conviction...and passion.  There should be blood in every brushstroke...like this!"
