He is the recipient of the Elizabeth Greenshields grant and numerous awards for his paintings and drawings throughout the US over the past twenty five years. Dean has taught painting at Silvermine Art Center in Connecticut for the past twelve years, and has recently been invited to teach still life painting in the summer of 2018 in Rome, Italy, through Rome Art Workshops.
