Derek Nobbs

Art Collaborations

Northwest artist Derek Nobbs is inspired by all things dark and dusty; a true Northwest Calaverist, who uses macabre maritime backdrops and dark Americana settings. Each of his theatrical pieces, done in watercolor and gouache, are showcased on specially “aged” papers using his “secret recipe,” which may or may not contain coal dust, ambergris, tobacco found in a civil war soldier’s jacket pocket, wolves blood, or the last dregs of whiskey found in his great grandfather’s cellar.
