York was born in 1978 in Libertyville, Illinois to parents Daniel Lee York and June Dianne York and raised in the far north-west suburb of Chicago, Round Lake Beach. He began drawing & painting as a small child and continued to learn and develop his skills under his art teacher, Betsy Edwards, from Grade School up into his attendance at Round Lake Senior high School. He was never formally trained beyond this. He now lives and works in downtown Nashville, TN.
His current works are the Delusionism series and Attraction series.
