Printmaker, and Digital Artist – Dan first began seriously
painting and drawing after high school. He studied art with an
emphasis on lithography at Humboldt State University and earned
his Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of California
at Santa Barbara in 1977. After working briefly as a draftsman
for a civil engineering firm, Dan began my career as a graphic
designer working in the corporate marketing department of a large
manufacturer. Before He left, Dan had two artists working for him
and a $250,000 budget to manage. Dan's love for lithography and
the printed page continued through into the late 80’s and
while He worked freelance creating paintings, illustrations and
designs for various clients.
When the digital revolution reinvented the fields of graphic design
and printing, Dan studied at the Art Center in Pasadena to learn
the latest digital media techniques. In 1998 He earned a Certificate
of Digital Multimedia Technician.
Dan is exceptionally skilled in pastel, colored pencil, oil and
canvas mediums and you’ll find my illustration style impressionistic,
whimsical and vibrant. When he is not painting Dan manages his
own graphic design firm. That's my Dan's boy Willie in the picture.
