BIO Clifford Darrett, born in Evansville, Indiana, has always had the “natural ability " to draw. He took classes in drawing, painting and graphic arts at Sinclair Community College in Dayton, Ohio, while working on his Associate Degree for Electronic Data Processing. Upon graduating from Sinclair in 1973, he transferred to Central State University where he took more art classes while working towards a Degree in Business Administration. By the time he had received his Masters Degree in Computer Science from the University Of Dayton in 1979, he had gained much from his artistic learning experiences which has served to amplify his natural ability.
