His art has been has been exhibited widely over the last 50 years and now can be found in several corporate and private collections.Reed is well known for his non-traditional style, color palette and unusual variety of subject matter. 

What I do…I call it imagery. By that I mean the end result is not necessarily a study of the subject, but how I feel the image should look in the end. I’ve always had the need to experiment with paints, mixed media applications, colors, textures and subject matter.  I’m never short on inspiration to capture what fascinates me.
