Reeves received a B.A. in Art, with honors, from the University of Northern Iowa in 1994 while also pursuing his interests in film, theatre, and music. For more than a quarter-century, he has been creating and exhibiting public art, studio work, and commissions for private collectors and corporate collections. Drawing from his surroundings and using architectural and figurative themes as backdrops, Reeves renders everyday locations and objects from his unique perspective to reconstruct particular moments in time. In creating form and structure using light, Reeves seeks to draw viewers into the moment and illicit personal re-examinations of the familiar.
