Raised in Orange Park, David Dollarhide is a graduate of St. Johns Country Day School and Florida State University.  While in college, he learned to fly and later became a flight instructor and airline pilot.  His artistic focus early on was on drawing and architecture.

In the past several years, David has had a creative surge, experimenting with contemporary furniture design and construction, painting, drawing and multimedia sculpture, primarily using objects that he has saved over the years.  Constantly writing down ideas for new projects, he is inspired by pop culture, nature, comedy and the people around him.

Although he has sold a few works of art, this is David’s first art exhibition and he is extremely honored to represent the Jacksonville community, among a group of such fine artists.
