Curtis has created art throughout his life. His interest in art began with oil painting and acrylic murals. He further developed his artistic skills as a stained glass artist in the mountains of western North Carolina. As he traveled and explored the forests of Appalachia on foot and the Gulf of Mexico from his sailboat, his art grew along with him. Curtis is currently painting with acrylics and watercolors. The elements of water, earth and sky are an ever present features in his artwork.

His paintings have been featured in the Sulphur Springs Museum in Tampa, Rum 138 Gallery in Fort White, First Magnitude in Gainesville and Woodfield Fine Art Gallery in St. Petersburg. After completing the Florida Master Naturalist program with instructors at the Whitney Lab for Marine BioScience and Riverwalk Nature Center in Rockledge, Curtis went on to learn more about Florida's waterways through the Field School program with the Florida Springs Institute. 

The artist’s current work highlights moments from his travels, paddling and camping along  the Suwannee River, from White Springs to the Gulf of Mexico and exploring the Hillsborough, the Santa Fe, the Ichetucknee and Weeki Wachee Rivers in an effort to inspire people to treasure these beautiful waterways and protect them.
