Duane was born and raised in Indianapolis, and began his art career at Southport High School on the Southside of Indianapolis. He attended Herron School of Art, studying Visual Communications and earning a Bachelor’s Degree of Fine Arts in Visual Communications. Duane has received a variety of awards for his work over the years.
Duane says, “I find inspiration in the sculpture of Rodin, and am inspired by the pencil work of Paul Calle. Portraying the human experience, I hope to capture not only the beauty of the human form but the emotion. I strive to capture the subtleties of expression, the power and the passion — pulled out of the cold, earthy material from which I work.”
